Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine the applicability of the boundary element method to analysing a plate on elastic foundation. The fundamental solution of the problem is presented as a Fourier-Bessel integral. For the computation of the values of the fundamental solution an algorithm was developed in which the Fourier-Bessel integral was decomposed into an alternative convergent sequence. Equations based on the direct and indirect boundary element method were derived for a plate situated on a one- or two-parametric elastic foundation. According to the theory presented, computer programs based on the direct and indirect boundary element method were developed.
