In the present work a new approach to solve fluid-structure interaction problems is described. Both, the equations of motion for fluids and for solids have been approximated using a material (lagrangian) formulation. To approximate the partial differential equations representing the fluid motion, the shape functions introduced by the Meshless Finite Element(More)
A meshless method is presented which has the advantages of the good meshless methods concerning the ease of introduction of node connectivity in a bounded time of order n, and the condition that the shape functions depend only on the node positions. Furthermore, the method proposed also shares several of the advantages of the Finite Element Method such as:(More)
It is widely acknowledged that 3-D mesh generation remains one of the most man-hours consuming techniques within computational mechanics. The problem of mesh generation is that the time remains unbounded, even using the most sophisticated mesh-generator. For a given distribution of points, it is possible to obtain a mesh very quickly, but it may require(More)
