The boundary element method is a technique for solving a boundary value problem1;

determining the solution of a problem in s field or domain from a given condition on the

boundary (or boundaries) of that domain. The boundary element method can be a

versatile method only if it includes the ability to represent any boundary in the given

class of two-, three- or axisymmetric three-dimensional space. In general this is carried

out by the facility of defining the boundary as a set of panels, each having the same

characteristic form (or a set of two or three characteristic forms in more advanced

software). For example a closed two- dimensional boundary can be represented by a set

of straight lines, as illustrated in the following figure.

like the one illustrated above. However, techniques have arisen for modelling open

boundaries or discontinuities and these may also be represented in a similar way.

Let S be the original boundary and let ( for j = 1, 2, .., n) be the panels that represent

an approximation to S in the boundary element method. If = =1 is the surface

described by the complete set of panels then is the approximation to ; . The

representation of the boundary in this way is the first step in the discretisation of the

integral operators that occur in the boundary integral formulations. Users of the

boundary element method will focus mainly on the creation of the boundary mesh and

the application of boundary conditions on the mesh.

Since every panel (in each particular dimensional space) has a similar characteristic

form, the integration over each panel can be generalised. This function is carried out by

the subroutines L2LC, L3LC, and L3ALC for the Laplace equation and H2LC, H3LC and

H3ALC for the Helmholtz equation in two-, three- and axisymmetric three dimensional

problems respectively and these subroutines form the core modules for the Laplace or

Helmholtz problems in the particular dimensional space.

The representation of the boundary by a set of characteristic panels enables us to easily

define the boundary using data structures. For example an ordered list of the

coordinates of the vertices of the approximating polygon in the figure above defines the

boundary. The following panels show the simplest elements that can be used to

approximate a surface.

Part of the numerical error in the boundary element solution will be a result of the

approximation of the boundary. A better boundary approximation and a smaller

numerical error will generally arise if the boundary is represented by curved panels.

The methods described apply to only the simplest panels, straight line panels for twodimensional boundaries2, planar triangles for general three-dimensional boundaries3

and truncated conical panels for axisymmetric problems 4.
