SUMMARY An analytical integration method for evaluating the singular integrals arising in the construction of symmetric boundary element models is proposed, referring to the analysis of Kirchhoff plates. Kernels involved in the symmetric boundary formulation of Kirchhoff plates exhibit singularities up to O(1/r 4 ). The proposed technique temporarily deactivates the singularities by using a limit approach and carries out the integration on contiguous boundary elements in order to smooth the… CONTINUE READING
