This paper presents an effective high order boundary integral equation method (BIEM) for the solution of biharmonic equations. All boundary values including geometries are approximated by high order radial basis
function networks (RBFNs) rather than the conventional low order Lagrange interpolation schemes. For a better quality of approximation, the networks representing the boundary values and their derivatives are constructed by using integration processes. Prior conversions of network weights into nodal variable values are employed in order to form a square system of equations. Numerical results show that the proposed BIEM attains a great improvement in solution accuracy, convergence rate and computational efficiency over the linear- and quadratic-BIEMs.
