This paper presents a novel application of the boundary element method to solve problems in linear elasticity. The new method is called the Boundary Contour Method. This approach requires no numerical integration at all for two-dimensional problems and numerical evaluation of line integrals only for three-dimensional problems; even for curved line or surface boundary elements of arbitrary shape! Numerical results are presented for some two-dimensional problems.
