# Analytical Formulae for Potential Integrals on Triangles

@article{Carley2013AnalyticalFF, title={Analytical Formulae for Potential Integrals on Triangles}, author={M. Carley}, journal={Journal of Applied Mechanics}, year={2013}, volume={80}, pages={041008} }

The problem of evaluating potential integrals on planar triangular elements has been addressed using a polar coordinate decomposition, giving explicit formulae for the regular and for the principal value and finite part integrals used in hypersingular formulations. The resulting formulae are general, exact, easily implemented, and have only one special case, that of a field point lying in the plane of the element. Results are presented for the evaluation of the potential and its gradients… Expand
