boundary element program for a microcomputer. The steps outlined in the
thesis include the adaptation of a mainframe—based boundary element code
for use on a microcomputer, the Verification of this program with sample
problems, the development of an algorithm for coupling the Finite Element
Method to the Boundary Element Method, the implementation of the coupling
algorithm with finite element and boundary element codes, including the
development of a Constant Strain Triangular finite element, and the Verification
of the coupled program with sample problems. Conclusions are
drawn from the results presented, and suggestions are made for future
research in this area.
