The main aim of this book is to provide readers with a simple introduction to the Boundary Element method, as an alternative technique to the FE method, without resorting to complex mathematical theory and jargon. Throughout the booklet, emphasis will be placed on the physical significance of the Boundary Element theory rather than its mathematical details. The coverage of the Boundary Element method in this booklet is limited to linear static analysis, with a brief introduction to non-linear problems. Sufficient references are given to enable readers to seek further details of Boundary Element formulations.
This booklet is aimed at readers who are reasonably familiar with the FE method and its application to engineering problems. It is assumed that the reader is a graduate in any engineering discipline, applied mathematics or physics with no previous knowledge of the mathematical foundation of Boundary Element methods.
