Boundary Element Methods
Boundary element method (BEM) is a computational technique for the approximate solution of the problems in continuum mechanics. In BEM the governing differential equations are transformed into equivalent boundary integral equations with the aid of Gauss (divergence) theorem and fundamental solutions.
Fundamental solutions are special type of Green’s functions, which are solutions of the governing equations due to a point force acting in an infinite domain.
