Going far beyond the standard texts, this book extensively covers boundary integral equation (BIE) formulations and the boundary element method (BEM). The first section introduces BIE formulations for potential and elasticity problems, following the modern regularization approach – the fundamental starting point for research in this field. Secondly, a clear description of BIE formulations for wave and elastodynamics problems, in both time and frequency domains is presented. Finally, recent research in the field, related to variational integral formulations, use of geometrical symmetry, shape sensitivity and fracture mechanics is summarised. Within the text a broad range of application areas, industrial as well as research related, are examined. These include:

∗ elasticity and small–strain elastoplasticity

∗ time–domain and frequency–domain scalar and elastic waves

∗ fracture mechanics

Including an extensive bibliography, this text will be of considerable value and interest to graduate students, researchers and lecturers in engineering mechanics, applied maths and physics, as well as industrial practitioners working within these areas.
