BOUNDARY ELEMENTS Theory and Applications Book By J. T. Katsikadelis

 

Although the BEM is taught as a regular course at an ever increasing number of

universities, there is a noticeable lack of a textbook which could help students as

well as professional engineers to understand the method, the underlying theory and

its application to engineering problems. An essential reason is that BEM courses

are taught mainly as advanced graduate courses, and therefore much of the under-

lying fundamental knowledge of mathematics and mechanics is not covered in the

respective undergraduate courses. Thus, the existing books on BEM are addressed

rather to academia and researchers who, somehow, have already been exposed to

the BEM than to students following a BEM course for the first time and engineers

who are using boundary element software in industry.
