Abstract

The Dual Reciprocity Method (DRM) is the most powerful and versatile technique which has appeared to date for taking domain integrals to the boundary in the boundary element analysis. In this study it was applied to the solution of a classical transient,one-dimensional heat conduction problem. The DRM results were validated by comparing with the analytical solutions. Introduction Since 1978 the Boundary Element Method (BEM) has developed considerably and been applied to solve a wide range of engineering problems, particularly those involving linear analysis. Further increase in the number of applications of the method has been hampered by the need to operate with relatively complex fundamental solutions or the difficulties encountered when trying to extend the BEM to non-linear and time d
