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.
