The boundary element method (BEM) is a modern numerical techniquewhich has enjoyed increasing popularity over the last two decades,and is now an established alternative to traditional computationalmethods of engineering analysis. The main advantage of the BEM isits unique ability to provide a complete solution in terms ofboundary values only, with substantial savings in modelling effort.

This two-volume book set is designed to provide the readers with acomprehensive and up-to-date account of the boundary element methodand its application to solving engineering problems. Each volume isa self-contained book including a substantial amount of materialnot previously covered by other text books on the subject. Volume 1covers applications to heat transfer, acoustics, electrochemistryand fluid mechanics problems, while volume 2 concentrates on solidsand structures, describing applications to elasticity, plasticity,elastodynamics, fracture mechanics and contact analysis. The earlychapters are designed as a teaching text for final yearundergraduate courses. Both volumes reflect the experience of theauthors over a period of more than twenty years of boundary element research.

This volume, Applications in Thermo-Fluids and Acoustics, provides acomprehensive presentation of the BEM from fundamentals to advancedengineering applications and encompasses:

  • Steady and transient heat transfer
  • Potential and viscous fluid flows
  • Frequency and time-domain acoustics
  • Corrosion and other electrochemical problems.

A unique feature of this book is an in-depth presentation of BEMformulations in all the above fields, including detaileddiscussions of the basic theory, numerical algorithms and practicalengineering applications of the method.

Written by an internationally recognised authority in the field,this is essential reading for postgraduates, researchers andpractitioners in civil, mechanical and chemical engineering andapplied mathematics.
