Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


The boundary integral equation method presented in the paper features with the following: (11 no singular kernels, strong or weak, are involved, and computationally, no local “element” approximations are needed; (2) the integral equations are well conditioned, including the cases of the bounded and multiply-connected regions, and no iterative approximations are involved; (3) no post-solution differentiation is involved. These features provide for a higher computational efficiency. The method solves in full a number of engineering problems, and can be used for the stiffness matrix formulation in more complex situations.
