A new boundary integral formulation with no singularity

  • Lei Xiaoyan
  • Wang Xiuxi
  • Huang Maokuang


The paper discusses how to reduce higher singularity order of a boundary integral equation. The approach will be discussed in some detail for plane elasticity. Numerical results for the meshes of unequal length boundary elements are reported. Higher precision for both deflection and force is obtained than that obtained with a general boundary element method.
