  • Abstract

Based on the Kirchhoff transformation and the natural boundary element method, we investigate a coupled natural boundary element method and finite element method for quasi-linear problems in a bounded or unbounded domain with a concave angle. By the principle of the natural boundary reduction, we obtain natural integral equation on circular arc artificial boundaries, and get the coupled variational problem and its numerical method. Moreover, the convergence of approximate solutions and error estimates are obtained. Finally, some numerical examples are presented to show the feasibility of our method. Our work can be viewed as an extension of the existing work of H.D. Han et al..
