Abstract: Three new applications of the Adaptive Cross Approximation will be reviewed. The first one is devoted to the reconstruction of the three-dimensional metal sheet surfaces obtained via incremental forming techniques by the use of the radial basis functions. In the second application, a calculation of effective elastic moduli in three-dimensional linear elasticity for highly anisotropic composite material is considered. The third application is a coupling of the Finite and Boundary Element Methods for elastic-plastic deformations arising in deep rolling processes.
