This work presents a direct boundary element method (BEM) in the Laplace
domain for transient dynamic analysis of the three-dimensional (3D) homogeneous linear
anisotropic elastic bodies. Proposed boundary element formulation is applied together with
the modified Durbin.s method for inverse Laplace transform to obtain time domain results.
Implementation of the proposed method is tested by comparing the numerical results with
those obtained with the finite element method software.
Keywords: 3D anisotropic elastic solid; dynamic analysis; boundary element method.
