Over the past decades, the Boundary Element Method has emerged as a ver satile and powerful tool for the solution of engineering problems, presenting in many cases an alternative to the more widely used Finite Element Method. As with any numerical method, the engineer or scientist who applies it to a practical problem needs to be acquainted with, and understand, its basic principles to be able to apply it correctly and be aware of its limitations. It is with this intention that we have endeavoured to write this book: to give the student or practitioner an easy-to-understand introductory course to the method so as to enable him or her to apply it judiciously. As the title suggests, this book not only serves as an introductory course, but also cov ers some advanced topics that we consider important for the researcher who needs to be up-to-date with new developments. This book is the result of our teaching experiences with the Boundary Element Method, along with research and consulting activities carried out in the field. Its roots lie in a graduate course on the Boundary Element Method given by the authors at the university of Stuttgart. The experiences gained from teaching and the remarks and questions of the students have contributed to shaping the 'Introductory course' (Chapters 1-8) to the needs of the stu dents without assuming a background in numerical methods in general or the Boundary Element Method in particular.

Containing the latest in a long line of conferences covering the most recent advances in Boundary Elements and Mesh Reduction Methods (BEM/MRM), this book contains an important chapter in the history of this important method used in science and engineering. The BEM/MRM conference has long been recognised as THE international forum on the technique. The proceedings of the conference therefore constitute a record of the development of the method, running from the initial successful development of boundary integral techniques into the BEM, a method that eliminates the need for an internal mesh, to the recent and most sophisticated Mesh Reduction and even Meshless Methods. Since the boundary elements, mesh reduction, and meshless methods are used in many engineering and scientific fields, the book will be of great interest to all engineers and scientists working within the areas of numerical analysis, boundary elements and meshless methods. Topics covered include: Advanced formulations; Advanced meshless and mesh reduction methods; Structural mechanics applications; Solid mechanics; Heat and mass transfer, Electrical engineering and electromagnetics; Computational methods; Fluid flow modelling; Damage mechanics and fracture; Dynamics and Vibrations Engineering applications.

One of the most interesting developments in engineering analysis during the last few years has been the rapid growth of boundary element methods. The first and second international conferences on this topic held in 1978 and 1980 attracted approximately 30 papers each, most of them from a few well known groups around the world. The third meeting in 1981, produced instead approximately 40 papers, many of them from young investigators working in newly created research groups. They have been attracted to boundary elements by the many advantages of the technique and were able to assimilate rapidly, the new ideas unencumbered by previous con ceptions. That third conference held in 1981 constituted in many ways a turning point for boundary elements and it indicated for the first time a general awareness of the industry to the research being carried out in the new technique. Engineering firms started to appreciate the advantages of the method mainly from the computa tional aided engineering point of view. The advantages of simple data input and output was rapidly understood by those professional engineers who were forced up to them to use cumbersome finite element codes. Boundary element practitioners in close contacts with the industry started to perceive that the method was gather ing a critical momentum of its own. This is now more evident by the diversity and quality of the papers in this volume, which are the edited Proceedings of the 4th International Conference, held at the University of Southampton in September 1982.

The analysis of plates and shells under static and dynamic loads is of greatinterest to scientists and engineers both from the theoretical and the practical viewpoint. The Boun- dary Element Method (BEM) has some distinct advantages over domain techniques such as the Finite Difference Method (FDM) and the Finite Element Method (FEM) for a wide class of structuralanalysis problems. This is the first book to deal specifically with the analysis of plates and shells by the BEM and to cover all aspects of their behaviour, and combi- nes tutorial and state-of-the-art articles on the BEM as ap- plied to plates and shells. It aims to inform scientists and engineers about the use and the advantages of this techni- que, the most recent developments in the field and the per- tinent literature for further study.

Boundary Element Methods have become a major numerical tool in scientific and engineering problem-solving, with particular applications to numerical computations and simulations of partial differential equations in engineering. Boundary Element Methods provides a rigorous and systematic account of the modern mathematical theory of Boundary Element Methods, including the requisite background on general partial, differential equation methods, Sobolev spaces, pseudo-differential and Fredholm operators and finite elements. It aims at the computation of many types of elliptic boundary value problems in potential theory, elasticity, wave propagation, and structural mechanics. Also presented are various methods and algorithms for nonlinear partial differential equations. This second edition has been fully revised and combines the mathematical rigour necessary for a full understanding of the subject, with extensive examples of applications illustrated with computer graphics. This book is intended as a textbook and reference for applied mathematicians, physical scientists and engineers at graduate and research level. It will be an invaluable sourcebook for all concerned with numerical modeling and the solution of partial differential equations.

This work presents a thorough treatment of boundary element methods (BEM) for solving strongly elliptic boundary integral equations obtained from boundary reduction of elliptic boundary value problems in $\mathbb{R}^3$. The book is self-contained, the prerequisites on elliptic partial differential and integral equations being presented in Chapters 2 and 3. The main focus is on the development, analysis, and implementation of Galerkin boundary element methods, which is one of the most flexible and robust numerical discretization methods for integral equations. For the efficient realization of the Galerkin BEM, it is essential to replace time-consuming steps in the numerical solution process with fast algorithms. In Chapters 5-9 these methods are developed, analyzed, and formulated in an algorithmic way.

The boundary element method (BEM) is now a well-established numerical technique which provides an efficient alternative to the prevailing finite difference and finite element methods for the solution of a wide range of engineering problems. The main advantage of the BEM is its unique ability to provide a complete problem solution in terms of boundary values only, with substantial savings in computer time and data preparation effort. An initial restriction of the BEM was that the fundamental solution to the original partial differential equation was required in order to obtain an equivalent boundary in tegral equation. Another was that non-homogeneous terms accounting for effects such as distributed loads were included in the formulation by means of domain integrals, thus making the technique lose the attraction of its "boundary-only" character. Many different approaches have been developed to overcome these problems. It is our opinion that the most successful so far is the dual reciprocity method (DRM), which is the subject matter of this book. The basic idea behind this approach is to employ a fundamental solution corresponding to a simpler equation and to treat the remaining terms, as well as other non-homogeneous terms in the original equation, through a procedure which involves a series expansion using global approximating functions and the application of reciprocity principles.
