The boundary element method has come of age in

engineering analysis due to a wide range of research and applications

in industry. In essence, BEM greatly simplifies engineering analysis

due to its accuracy and efficiency over existing techniques such as the

finite element method. The method is now available in commercial

packages which have been intensively used by engineering firms

throughout the world. Nevertheless, research continues in developing

BEM for easier use by the industry, by integrating it with CAD/CAM,

and more importantly perhaps, in exploring its surprising adaptability

to various new areas in engineering. For instance, it has been

successfully applied in solid and fluid mechanics fields such as stress

analysis, water waves, ground water flow, aerodynamics, and thermal

problems. Many new applications are being explored: inverse problems,

sensitivity analysis, stochastic BEM, moving interface problems,

electromagnetics, acoustics and many others.

These books offer BEM researchers, code developers and

industrial users the opportunity of acquiring a detailed industrial

overview of the application of the new technology and of hearing

results and needs in computational tools of other industrial users, as

well as new developments in research of the technology.

As the boundary element method evolves and its application to solve

different engineering problems continues to increase, specialized

conferences such as BETECH 93 (Boundart Element Technology VIII) are

essential to discuss recent developments.

It is indicative of the importance of the BETECH Conferences that

all major developments in BEM have been reported at these seminars well

before they were published in learned journals. These meetings are

hence the best way to keep informed of new developments in the method

and its applications to solving engineering problems.

This book contains the edited version of some of the papers

presented at the BETECH Conference held in Vilamoura, Portugal,

November 1993. The material discussed covers topics such as Fluid

Dynamics, Fluid Flow, Thermal Problems, Electrical Problems, Stress

Analysis, Damage Tolerance, and Computational Aspects, with emphasis on

practical applications.

The remarkable developments in boundary element research in recent

decades have been mainly attributable to the innovation of efficient

computational techniques by introducing boundary elements for

discretization of the boundary integral equations. Owing to the many

important breakthroughs in this domain, BEM has been widely

recognized as one of the main techniques in computer-aided engineering

(CAE). BEM is an efficient tool for optimal shape design and other

topical inverse problems. Further advances continue to be made in

innovating and developing more efficient solution procedures based on

BEM for both linear and nonlinear problems. The impact of advanced

computer technology, including down-sizing and networks as well as

super and parallel computers, is a major influence factor in the further

extensions and applications of BEM. The most important topics in BEM

are described here by well-known researchers in the field. The 38 papers

are characterized by a combination of tutorial and state of the art

aspects.

As the interest in the Boundary Element Method grows amongst the

scientific and engineering community, the International Conference

series on Boundary Element Methods is becoming increasingly important

to provide researchers and practitioners with a forum to interchange

ideas on the state of the art and future directions of boundary element

technology. Papers presented in these Volume 1 Proceedings of the 16th

Boundary Element Method Conference held in Southampton in July 1994,

are of exceptionally high quality and continue to bring to the

attention of the community new ideas in the field of boundary elements.

The largest number of papers are grouped in this Volume 1 of the

set which includes the following sections: Diffusion Problems,

Acoustics, Heat Transfer, Electromagnetics, Inverse Problems, Numerical

and Computational Aspects, Adaptive Techniques, Accuracy and Error

Analysis, Stress Analysis, Contact Mechanics, Damage Tolerance,

Vibrations, Geomechanics, Optimization and Security and Coupling Problems.

A special feature of this 16th Conference has been the

organization of a series of sessions on Fluid Mechanics which are

grouped together in Volume 2 and include sections on Potential Flow,

Stokes Flow Interfacial and Free Surface Flow and Wave Motion.

The boundary element method (BEM) has come into its own as a powerful

technique for engineering analysis of field problems arising in

industry and research. The BEM is now a serious competitor to the

popular finite difference and finite element methods, and industrial

BEM codes are making headway in becoming a commonplace analysis tool in

industry. There are now two annual international meetings dedicated to

providing a forum for the exchange of ideas between researchers and

industrial users of the BEM: the International Conference on Boundary

Elements (BEM) series and the Intenational Boundary Element Technology

Conference (BETECH series). Traditionally, the newest developments in

the BEM have appeared in the proceedings of these meetings prior to

publication in professional journals.

The BETECH series predominantly emphasises applications of the BEM

and this book contains the edited versions of papers presented at the

9th International Conference on Boundary Element Technology, held at

the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida in March 1994.

The papers cover heat transfer, fluid flow, electromagnetics,

electrochemical processes, acoustics, stress analysis, plates and

shells, and fracture mechanics. In addition, several papers cover BEM

application to inverse problems, computational aspects of the BEM, and

developments of fundamental solutions.

Fluid dynamics is traditionally one of the most challenging areas of

computational mechanics, the simulation of fluid motion is always a

serious test for any numerical method, in particular non-linear

problems. Recent developments in the Boundary Element Method have been

very successful in dealing with complex fluid flow problems. The BEM

continues to be an area of very active research in Computational Fluid

Dynamics, where the emphasis is on developing new algorithms and

widening the field of applications.

This book presents and discusses advances in the application of

the BEM to engineering and applied science, covering Stokes flow,

Potential flow, Wave motion, Non-linear flow, and Interfacial and

free-surface flow.

This book contains the edited versions of the papers presented at

the **2nd International Workshop on Boundary Element methods in Fluid
Dynamics**, which was held in conjunction with the 16th Boundary Element

International Conference in Southampton, UK.
