The Conference on Mesh Reduction Methods and Boundary Elements (MRM/BEM) is recognised as the international forum for the latest advances of these methods and their applications in sciences and engineering. The book should be of interest to engineers and scientists working within the areas of numerical analysis, boundary elements and meshless methods.
Since the first conference took place in Southampton UK in 1978, the success of the meeting is an indication of the strength of the research being carried out by many different groups around the world. This continuous growth is a result of the evolution of the techniques from methods based on classical integral equations to techniques that now cover a wide variety of mathematical approaches, the main objective of which is to reduce or eliminate the mesh. The mesh, a concept inherited from more primitive methods, such as finite differences and finite elements, is alien to the solution of the problem and dictated only by the limitations of first-generation analysis techniques.
The topics of the latest conference include: Fluid Flow; Damage Mechanics and Fracture; Dynamics and Vibrations; Electrical Engineering and Electromagnetics; Advanced Meshless and Mesh Reduction Methods; Advanced Formulations; Computational Techniques.
