This two-volume book set is designed to provide the readers with acomprehensive and up-to-date account of the boundary element methodand its application to solving engineering problems. Each volume isa self-contained book including a substantial amount of materialnot previously covered by other text books on the subject. Volume 1covers applications to heat transfer, acoustics, electrochemistryand fluid mechanics problems, while volume 2 concentrates on solidsand structures, describing applications to elasticity, plasticity,elastodynamics, fracture mechanics and contact analysis. The earlychapters are designed as a teaching text for final yearundergraduate courses. Both volumes reflect the experience of theauthors over a period of more than twenty years of boundary elementresearch.
This volume, Applications in Solids and Structures, provides acomprehensive presentation of the BEM from fundamentals to advancedengineering applications and encompasses:
? Elasticity for 2D, 3D and Plates and Shells
? Non-linear, Transient and Thermal Stress Analysis
? Crack Growth and Multi-body Contact Mechanics
? Sensitivity Analysis and Optimisation
? Analysis of Assembled Structures.
An important feature of this book is the in-depth presentation ofBEM formulations in all the above fields, including detaileddiscussions of the basic theory, numerical algorithms and wherepossible simple examples are included, as well as test results forpractical engineering applications of the method. Although most ofthe methods presented are the latest developments in the field, theauthor has included some simple techniques, which are helpful inunderstanding the computer implementation of BEM.
Another notable feature is the comprehensive presentation of a newgeneration of boundary elements known as the Dual Boundary ElementMethod.
Written by an internationally recognised authority in the field,this is essential reading for postgraduates, researchers andpractitioners in Aerospace, Mechanical and Civil Engineering andApplied Mathematics.
