Boundary Elements and Other Mesh Reduction Methods: XXX

Hardback
The major motivation behind the Boundary Element Method (BEM) was to reduce the dependency of analysis on the definition of meshes. This has allowed the method to expand naturally into new techniques such as Dual Reciprocity and all other Mesh Reduction Methods (MRM). MRM and BEM continue to be very active areas of research with many of the resulting techniques being successfully applied to solve increasingly complex problems.This book contains papers presented at the much-acclaimed Thirtieth International Conference on Boundary Elements and other Mesh Reduction Methods. The proceedings contain papers on practically all major developments in Boundary Elements, including the most recent MRM techniques, grouped under the following topics: meshless techniques; advances in mesh reduction methods; advanced formulations; advanced structural applications; heat and mass transfer; electrical engineering and electromagnetics; fluid flow; computational techniques; dynamics and vibrations; damage mechanics and fracture; material characterization; and emerging applications.The book should be of interest to engineers and scientists within the areas of numerical analysis, boundary elements and meshless methods.
