## Boundary Element Analysis: Theory and ProgrammingBoundary Element Analysis: Theory and Programming introduces the theory behind the boundary element method and its computer applications. The author uses Cartesian tensor notation throughout the book and includes the steps involved in deriving many of the equations, enabling students to master this powerful and necessary tool for comprehending most of the literature on boundary elements. The book reviews elasticity, plate bending, elastodynamics, and elastoplasticity theories and their boundary element formulations. The author provides computer programs in Fortran 77 for elastostatic, plate bending, and free and forced vibration problems with detailed descriptions of various segments of the code. He adopts a unified approach in developing these programs, so that when students understand of the working of one program, they can easily follow the others. This approach enables students to begin using the boundary element method immediately. The book also presents a brief description of the finite element method with steps to develop efficient computer codes and a number of ways to combine the boundary element and finite boundary element equations to achieve the best results when analyzing a variety of engineering problems. The author's elegant presentation and comprehensive coverage of problems in structural and solid mechanics make Boundary Element Analysis: Theory and Programming an easy-to-use text for both students and professors. |
