35th International Conference on Boundary Elements and Other Mesh Reduction Methods (BEM/MRM 2013)
|Event Date/Time: Jun 11, 2013||End Date/Time: Jun 13, 2013|
The continuous success of the conference since the first meeting took place in 1978 indicates the strength of the research carried out by different groups around the world. The history of the Conference, now in its 35th annual meeting, traces the evolution of advanced methods since the first successful development of boundary integral techniques into BEM took place to the recent and most sophisticated Mesh Reduction Methods. The objective of the meetings is the further development of technologies that reduce or eliminate the type of meshes required by first generation computational methods such as finite differences and finite elements. The aim was achieved through the emergence of BEM as a method that eliminates the need for an internal mesh and more recently through the development of a series of advanced techniques for further mesh reduction approaches culminating in the meshless methods.
Since 1978 the conference has produced a series of volumes in which all major developments in the field have been presented. This valuable collection has been available in digital form since 1993 when the volumes started to be archived in the eLibrary of the Wessex Institute (http://library.witpress.com) where they can be easily accessed by the international scientific community.
