Abstract
This thesis describes the development of a coupled finite element —

boundary element program for a microcomputer. The steps outlined in the

thesis include the adaptation of a mainframe—based boundary element code

for use on a microcomputer, the Verification of this program with sample

problems, the development of an algorithm for coupling the Finite Element

Method to the Boundary Element Method, the implementation of the coupling

algorithm with finite element and boundary element codes, including the

development of a Constant Strain Triangular finite element, and the Verification

of the coupled program with sample problems. Conclusions are

drawn from the results presented, and suggestions are made for future

research in this area.
