Convergence of the direct boundary element method

    Project Details


    The boundary element method is one of the best known numerical formulations for acoustic computations. Despite the fact that many researchers have used this method for solving acoustic problems, the theoretical foundation of the method is not well known in the acoustic community. Work on convergence in 1997 has concentrated on compiling the results on convergence of boundary element formulations in the mathematical literature and on developing a more intuitive approach to a convergence theory. A paper on this study combined with results found last year has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Sound and Vibration.
    The work was financially supported by the Danish Technical Research Council.
