Boundary Element Method for Deterministic and Stochastic Shape Design Sensitivity Analysis

  • T. Burczyński
Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


A general approach to shape design sensitivity analysis using boundary elements is presented.A variation method for variable regions and the adjoint system method are applied to obtain computable expressions for the effect of deterministic and stochastic boundary shape variation on functionals and eigen-values arising in the optimal design problems.To illustrate the application of the boundary element method in shape design sensitivity analysis a plane elastic structural component is calculated.
