Review of: Boundary Elements IX, Vols. 1–3

1988-07-01 , Rudolphi, Thomas , Takle, Eugene , Rudolphi, Thomas , Aerospace Engineering , Geological and Atmospheric Sciences

This three-volume edition contains edited versions of 128 papers presented at the 9th International Conference on Boundary Elements held at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, from 31 August to 4 September 1987. The conference series is devoted to a review of the latest developments in the technique and theory of the boundary element methods (BEM) with emphasis on new advances and trends. This particular meeting was to be devoted to ''the engineering aspects versus mathematical formulations, in an effort to consolidate the basis of many new applications.'' Whether this goal was achieved is necessarily going to be determined by whether the reader has the mathematical ability to digest and interpret the several papers that address the mathematical bases of some of the newer applications. Each volume is divided into six to eight sections of related papers. One or two invited papers lead off most of the sections, followed by three to five contributed papers touching on both mathematical theory and applications of boundary elements. The references at the end of each contribution, when summed together, represent a substantial compilation of related literature representing a diversity of languages.

Review of: Finite Elements, Theory and Applications

1989-08-01 , Rudolphi, Thomas , Rudolphi, Thomas , Aerospace Engineering

This volume covers the proceedings of the workshop sponsored by the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering ((CASE) held 28-30 July 1988 in Hampton, Virginia, at the NASA Langley Research Center. It consists of 13 articles by finite element researchers and practitioners and 13 intended to assess the impact of the theory on practice and to suggest areas of future research. About one-half of the articles review the theoretical aspects of the finite element method while the remaining are devoted to advanced applications where research is still required.
