We propose a formulation for linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) in which the stress intensity factors (SIF) are found directly from the solution vector of an extended boundary element method (XBEM) formulation. The enrichment is embedded in the BEM formulation, rather than adding new degrees of freedom for each enriched node. Therefore, a very limited number of new degrees of freedom is added to the problem, which contributes to preserving the conditioning of the linear system of equations. The Stroh formalism is used to provide BEM fundamental solutions for any degree of anisotropy, and these are used for both conventional and enriched degrees of freedom. Several numerical examples are shown with benchmark solutions to validate the proposed method.
