Abstract: This paper presents a robust formulation of the boundary element (BE) method for more complex elastoplastic applications such as elastoplastic frictional contact problems. The elastoplastic BE formulation is applied to standard test problems. The BE solutions are compared with the corresponding finite element (FE) solutions provided by a commercially available FE package, ABAQUS, and analytical or experimental results.
Keywords: Plasticity, efficiency, boundary element method.
