Overview

This is a through, yet understandable, text about the boundary element method (BEM), an attractive alternative to the finite element method (FEM). It not only explains the theory, but also deals with the implementation into computer code written in FORTRAN 95 (software can be freely downloaded). Applications range from potential problems to static and dynamic problems in elasticity and plasticity. The book also addresses the issue of fast solution of large scale problems, using parallel processing hardware.
