In many important problems of structural mechanics the exact solution has one or more singular points. In the vicinity of singular points it is typically characterized by a sequence of eigenpairs. The determination of these eigenpairs, and reliable computation of the coefficients of the asymptotic expansion, are of great practical importance because failure theories directly or indirectly involve these coefficients. In this paper a numerical method for the computation of eigenpairs and the determination of the coefficients of asymptotic expansion for singularities associated with corners, multi-material interfaces and abrupt changes in boundary conditions is presented.
