International Series on Advances in Boundary Elements. 7. Southampton: WIT Press. vi, 238 p. (2000).
Publisher’s description (no review copy received): The Boundary Element Method (BEM) is an ideal analysis tool for problems in acoustics and noise control, and there are now several commercially available BEM codes designed for use in these fields. Using this unique tutorial, readers will not only become familiar with the basic principles of the BEM in acoustics, but will also be able to gain hands-on experience by constructing computer codes for a wide range of problems. The first text to cover virtually every aspect of the BEM in acoustics, this book will be ideally suited to researchers, engineers and graduate students. A CD-ROM providing FORTRAN codes is also included.
