Abstract

A complex variable boundary element method (CVBEM) is proposed for cal- culating numerically the antiplane shear stresses in an inhomogeneous elas- tic body. The shear modulus of the body is given by p,(x,y) = X(x)Y(y), where x and y are the spatial Cartesian coordinates. 1 Introduction The task of determining the elastostatic stresses in a finite isotropic solid undergoing an antiplane deformation can be mathematically formulated in terms of a boundary value problem (B VP) which requires solving the elliptic partial differential equation (PDE) 0in#, 1 subject to the boundary conditions (BCs) ni4-n2ir = 4^,2/)for(^,/)GC2.
