What are boundary elements?
The boundary element method (BE method) is an integral equation method, or as we could say as well an influence function method. It is based on the fact that in linear problems the boundary values uniquely determine the displacements and stresses inside a structure such as the frame in Fig. 2.1, so that it suffices to discretize the edge with boundary elements only.
