Abstract

A new procedure of the boundary element method(BEM),say, singular BEM for the potential problems with singularities is presented. To obtain the numerical solution of which asymptotic behavior near the singularities is close to that of the analytic solution, we use particular elements on the boundary segments containing singularities. The Motz problem and the crack problem are taken as the typical examples, and numerical results of these cases show the efficiency of the present method.
