The exterior boundary value problems of linear elastic equations are considered. A sequence of approximations to the exact boundary conditions at an artificial boundary is given. Then the original problem is reduced to a boundary value problem on a bounded domain. Furthermore, a finite element approximation of this problem and optimal error estimates are obtained. Finally, a numerical example shows the effectiveness of this method.
