Part of the Topics in Boundary Element Research book series (TBOU, volume 2)


The viscous flow problems has been analyzed extensively by Wu and his coworkers (1976) using boundary integral equation method. The application of the direct boundary element method for viscous flow problems was discussed by Brebbia and Wrobel (1978) based on Laplace-Poisson equation formulation. Khader (1983) showed boundary element solutions of laminar developed duct flows of the viscous fluid.
