Direct Coupling of NBEM-FEM for Problems of the Interaction of Ground and Foundation Beam
The precision of the solution of the interaction of ground and foundation beam with the coupling method of traditional boundary element method (BEM) and FEM is usually not very high. The direct coupling model of NBEM and FEM for solving the interaction of foundation ground and foundation beam was set up firstly. Then the loads under foundation were worked out with the direct coupling method. The comparison of results between the direct coupling method and other methods proved that precision of the solution of the direct coupling method is higher.
