Abstract

The Multiple Reciprocity Method is a technique which converts BEM do- main integrals (resulting from the body force terms in the governing equa- tion) to the equivalent boundary ones. Solution is expressed in terms of series which involves the higher order fundamental solutions and successive Laplaciansof body force. This paper deals with the convergence of the MRM series. Simple numerical example is 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 many engineering problems this equation contains boundary integrals only which means that only boundary needs to be discretized. However, for some p
