Application of the Dual Reciprocity Method in formulations of the Boundary Element Method (BEM) using the dynamic fundamental solution for the following plane problems:a)Heat transfer under temperature control related to the problem of hyperthermia. The study concerns on the optimization process including a coupled set of boundary integral equations containing Maxwell and Pennes equations. The amount of heat introduced in the system is dependent on the electric and magnetic fields, which requires the introduction of their values in the objective function. The target of the optimization process is achieving a specific stationary temperature distribution in studied regions without high temperatures (44 ° C) occurring in healthy tissues and inadequate treatment temperatures (41 ° C) in diseased tissues. BEM analyses are performed with the fundamental solution derived from the Helmholtz equation.b)Plate bending considering the effect of shear deformation under harmonic loads. The plate rotations of the fundamental solution are decomposed in two potential fields, a scalar and a vector potential, derived from the solution of the Helmholtz equation. The effect of shear deformation in bending allows better accuracy in stress computation as well as in the assessment of the natural frequencies according to the thickness. Most of plate analysis in engineering problems includes distributed loads normal on the plate domain, which are weighted by displacements related to the fundamental solution in BEM solutions. The plate rotation decomposition in the above mentioned fields shows an intrinsic relation between displacement and scalar potential functions. (AU)
