In this chapter some applications of boundary element techniques to dynamic problems are presented. First, the basic theory is briefly reviewed in order to provide the necessary background to interpret the numerical results (for a fuller account of elastodynamic theory we recommend a study of the specialized literature). The second part of the chapter is devoted to the numerical implementation of the BEM. The presentation is based on the steady-state solution because this is the area in which most experience exists. This is by no means a limitation of the BEM method, and the use of integral transformations to obtain transient solutions is a well established procedure. Finally, in the third part three examples are presented. The first example is the steady-state solution of a plate under cyclic forces with and without a crack. The second example relies on the determination of soil compliances necessary to study soil-structure interaction and the third example treats the problem of the influence of different incidence angles of incoming waves in foundations. The last two examples are relevant to earthquake engineering problems for which the BEM is very well suited.
