Abstract

In this paper boundary problems with solution dependent body forces are solved by the Boundary Element Method. In order to avoid domain discretization the Multiple Reciprocity Method is used after the source term is approximated as a linear function of sought variable u. Solution of the problem is expressed in terms of a series which involves the higher order fundamental solutions and successive Laplacians of body force. Numerical examples are included. 1. Introduction The Boundary Element Method [1], [2] expresses the solution of a boundary value problem in terms of an integral equation, which is then solved numerically. For some engineering problems this equation contains boundary i
