Boundary Element Method for Composite Laminates
The boundary element method (BEM) is a numerical technique to solve engineering/physical problems formulated in terms of boundary integral equations. Composite laminates are assemblages of stacked different materials layers, generally consisting of variously oriented fibrous composite materials.
Generalized Plane Strain Problem
Let us consider an anisotropic, cylindrical, elastic body having cross section Ω with boundary Γ. The body is referred to the coordinate system xyz with the z-axis directed as the cylinder generatrices.
