In the present work the boundary element method (BEM) is applied to analysis of statically and dynamically loaded infinite plates with multiple stationary branched cracks. The material of the plates is linear-elastic, homogenous and isotropic. In the applied BEM approach the displacement and traction boundary integral equations are used simultaneously for nodes on crack surfaces. Contrary to the finite element method (FEM) in the BEM numerical solutions are obtained by discretization of external boundaries and crack surfaces. The dynamic problem is solved by using the Laplace transform method and the solution in the time domain is computed by the Durbin numerical inversion method. Numerical examples of multiple branched cracks in infinite plates subjected to static and dynamic loadings are presented. An influence of orientation, distances between cracks and the number of cracks on static and dynamic stress intensity factors (SIF) is studied.
