Abstract

Numerical integration for three-dimensional meshless BEM Y. Ochiai Department of Mechanical Engineering, Kinki University, Japan Abstract The conventional boundary element method (BEM) uses internal cells for the domain integrals when solving nonlinear problems or problems with domain effects. In the conventional BEM, however, the merit of the BEM, which is easy preparation of data, is lost. This paper presents numerical integration for a three-dimensional meshless BEM, which does not require the use of internal cells. This method uses arbitrary internal points instead of internal cells. In this paper, a three-dimensional interpolation method is proposed. Furthermore, three-dimensional numerical integration is proposed using the above-mentioned three-dimensional interpolation method. This method is based on an improved multiple-reciprocity BEM (triple-reciprocity BEM) for heat conduction analysis with heat generation. In order to investigate the efficiency of this method, several numerical exa
