## Boundary element formulations for thick platesThis book presents Boundary Element formulations for plate bending problems in which the Reissner plate bending theory is used to model the bending behaviour of the plate. The author applies several integral equations to solve engineering problems relating to a building slab, beam, footing, and simple raft and the results are compared against analytical solutions such as a finite difference method, a finite element method and a three-dimensional BEM. |
