Abstract
The scope of the present paper is the study of structures involving boundaries and interfaces of fractal geometry. The geometry is analysed here by a sequence of classical geometry problems formulated by means of Co and C1 - interpolating functions. These approximations of the fractal geometry are combined with the F.E.M. and the B.E.M. in order to calculate the stress and displacement fields in fractal structures.
