A new kind of BEM for strongly nonlinear problems is proposed and applied
to solve a 2D steady-state nonlinear heat transfer problem with the
temperature-dependent thermal conductivity coefficients different in x and y
It shows that the proposed BEM is really quite general
and can be used to solve even those nonlinear problems whose governing
equations do not contain any linear terms at all.
Although the Boundary Element Method (BEM) is essentially based on the
linear superposition of fundamental solutions, many researchers^ have
successfully applied it to solve nonlinear boundary-value problems governed
by an equation with a nonlinear differential operator A,
A%) = /(F).
If the nonlinear diff...
