Abstract

Static potential integrals for constant and linear sources on triangles are derived in a straightforward way. The new representations, as presented, are robust with respect to machine evaluation in important limiting cases. The potential integrals comprise up to six functions, each dependent on the relative position and orientation (with respect to an observation point) of a vertex and edge, respectively, of the source triangle. Gradients of the potentials are derived by differentiation, thus preserving relations between the representations. Each such vertex function reveals any anomalous functional behavior near its associated vertex or edge, which is useful information for devising test integral schemes. Potential plots in the source plane of an equilateral triangle illustrate such behavior, as do similar plots for each vertex function and gradient components near their associated edge and vertex.
