Abstract

The hybrid boundary element method for the analysis of solids N.A. Dumont", R.M. de Souza^ "Civil Engineering Department, PUC/RJ, 22^5� #20 (fe Janeiro, BmzzZ * Universidade Federal do Para, (formerly INTRODUCTION The hybrid boundary element method, as developed in the Civil Engineering Department at PUC/RJ, may already be considered a well established formulation for problems of elasticity and potential. Among other publications, several articles have been presented at BEM International Conferences, since 1987, dealing with the basic theory [1], body forces [2], special applications [3, 4] and transient problems [5]. The present paper describes the implementation of a three-dimensional analysis program [6]. In a first step, the basic equations are introduced and the most relevant numerical aspects are discussed. Then follows a general outline of the program, as regards stress analysis and post-pro
