Short description The finite-element method and the boundary-element method are the most widely used computational procedures in solid mechanics and other fields of engineering and physics. Yet, given their distinct features, each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Combining the unique advantages of both methods, the scaled boundary finite-element method is an innovative development that expands the scope of their applications. This important reference is the first to examine its specifics in depth.
