A linearly conforming radial point interpolation method (LC-RPIM) is presented for stress analysis of two-dimensional solids. In the LC-RPIM method, each field node is enclosed by a Voronoi polygon, and the displacement field function is approximated using RPIM shape functions of Kronecker delta function property created by simple interpolation using local nodes and radial basis functions augmented with linear polynomials to guarantee linear consistency. The system equations are then derived… CONTINUE READING
