Abstract: The stability and accuracy of local artificial boundary are two important criterions for evaluating its applied value in engineering. In this paper, a stress artificial boundary condition was developed by mixing the planar waves and the scattered waves transmitting into the linear elastic infinite media through artificial boundary. For the proposed boundary condition, the responses of boundary nodes and finite element nodes are calculated by the same integral method, and its stability condition is also the same as the finite element integral method. Numerical examples demonstrate that the accuracy of the proposed boundary is higher than that of existing viscous boundaries, viscous-spring boundaries, the first-order transmitting boundary and the second-order transmitting boundary.
