About this book


This volume presents and discusses recent advances in Boundary Element Methods (BEM) and their solid mechanics applications in those areas where these numerical methods prove to be the ideal solution tool. The aim is to illustrate these methods in their most recent forms developed during the last five to ten years and demonstrate their advantages when solving a wide range of solid mechanics problems encountered in many branches of engineering, such as civil, mechanical or aeronautical engineering.
