A Boundary Element Method for Two-Dimensional Contact Problems

Front Cover
Springer-Verlag, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 243 pages
This book is an attempt to demonstrate the power and versatility of Boundary Element Method (BEM) in solving the complicated contact problem. The basic concepts of contact are explained followed by the derivation of analytical and numerical boundary element formulation for two-dimensional elastic contact problems. The formulation is intended for a general case of contact, so that all different geometries in contact with different frictional conditions can be analyzed. The temperature changes and body forces are also included in the formulations.
