Originating from the 42nd conference on Boundary Elements and other Mesh Reduction Methods (BEM/MRM), the research presented in this book consist of high quality papers that report on advances in techniques that reduce or eliminate the type of meshes associated with such methods as finite elements or finite differences.
The maturity of BEM since 1978 has resulted in a substantial number of industrial applications which demonstrate the accuracy, robustness and easy use of the technique. Their range still needs to be widened, taking into account the potentialities of the Mesh Reduction techniques in general.
As design, analysis and manufacture become more integrated the chances are that the users will be less aware of the capabilities of the analytical techniques that are at the core of the process. This reinforces the need to retain expertise in certain specialised areas of numerical methods, such as BEM/MRM, to ensure that all new tools perform satisfactorily in the integrated process.
The papers in this volume help to expand the range of applications as well as the type of materials in response to industrial and professional requirements. Some of the topics include: Hybrid foundations; Meshless and mesh reduction methods; Structural mechanics; Solid mechanics; Heat and mass transfer; Electrical engineering and electromagnetics; Fluid flow modelling; Damage mechanics and fracture; Dynamics and vibrations analysis.
