Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Boundary Element Method:  Boundary Element Method Green’s identity: Laplace problem: Boundary Element Method:  Boundary Element Method Boundary integral equation for Laplace problem: Constant approximations at each element: Matrix – vector notation: Slide7:  Boundary Element Method Slide8:  Boundary Element Method Advantages: Small matrices Tracking boundary only Disadvantages: Dense matrices Homogeneous media only Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide10:  Laplace problem Example: Laplace equation on a circle with radius R Plot cond(A) as function of R Not solvable when R=1 Slide11:  Laplace problem Example: mixed problem at ellipse Unknowns: Not solvable when a=4/3 Slide12:  N=24 Laplace problem Slide13:  Laplace problem Consequence: may expect (almost) singular linear systems Slide14:  Laplace problem Boundary integral equation to solve: Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide16:  Logarithmic capacity BIE not solvable on Γ logarithmic capacity of Γ is one Definition logarithmic capacity C(Γ): with Slide17:  Logarithmic capacity Properties: Slide18:  Recall: mixed problem at ellipse Logarithmic capacity Singular when a=4/3 Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies 5. Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide20:  Rescale domain such that: Adjust fundamental solution: Add extra equation: Remedies Solve with: G1 Slide21:  Remedies Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide23:  Stokes problem Can also be solved with BEM fundamental solution Stokes equations Green’s identity for Stokes equations lead to Slide24:  Stokes problem Example: Dirichlet problem on a circle v is given, t unknown Not solvable at Slide25:  Stokes problem Example: Dirichlet problem on an ellipse v is given, t unknown Slide26:  Stokes problem Consequence: may expect (almost) singular linear systems Slide27:  Stokes problem No equivalent to logarithmic capacity No a priori information about critical domains Solve with: Remedy: add equations: G1 Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide29:  Application Blowing problem: Glass flow governed by Stokes equations Mixed boundary conditions BEM solves velocity at boundary Slide30:  Application Shape cond(A) Slide31:  Application Outline:  Outline Boundary Element Method Laplace problem Logarithmic capacity Remedies Stokes problem Application Conclusions Slide33:  Conclusions BEM does not always work for: Laplace problem (Dirichlet / mixed b.c.) Stokes problem (Dirichlet / mixed b.c.) Adding equations always works Unanswered questions: Critical domains for the Stokes problem Extension to general BVP Slide34:  W. D., R. M. M.
