Application of an improved boundary element method on the problem of elastic torsion

  • Du Sheng-guang


An improved boundary element method has been used in analyzing and calculating the problems of the torsion of a prismatic bar with elliptical cross-section. In this paper the calculated results correspond with the values of boundary element method. However, the quantity of data required by the improved boundary element method is much less than that required by boundary element method, and the calculating time will be greatly reduced. Therefore, the procedure of this paper is an economical and efficient numerical computational way for solving Poisson equation problem.
