Numerous special purpose Boundary Element Method (BEM) programmes now exist for a variety of important engineering problems difficult to solve using conventional finite elements. Areas of particular interest include acoustics, cathodic protection, electromagnetics, crack propagation, soil mechanics, damage mechanics, moving boundaries and a variety of viscous flow applications. The success of the BEM is reflected not only in the number of specialised computer codes based on the method, but also in the now routine implementation of boundary element techniques in major finite element systems.

Containing papers from the Fifteenth International Conference on Boundary Element Technology (BETECH), this book presents some of the most interesting and recent developments in the method, including its use in solving a variety of industrial problems. Almost 40 papers are included and these are divided under the following headings: Acoustics; Advanced Boundary Element Techniques; Combined Modelling Approaches; Electrochemical and Corrosion Modelling; Fluid Flow; Fracture and Damage; Heat Transfer; Stress Analysis; and Vibrations and Dynamics.
