An adaptive cell-based domain integration method for treatment of domain integrals in 3D boundary element method for potential and elasticity problems
An adaptive cell-based domain integration method (CDIM) is proposed for the treatment of domain integrals in 3D boundary element method (BEM). The domain integrals are computed in background cells rather than volume elements. The cells are created from the boundary elements based on an adaptive oct-tree structure and no other discretization is needed. Cells containing the boundary elements are subdivided into smaller sub-cells adaptively according to the sizes and levels of the boundary elements; and the sub-cells outside the domain are deleted to obtain the desired accuracy. The method is applied in the 3D potential and elasticity problems in this paper.
