The essential features of the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method, and of the Local Boundary Integral Equation (LBIE) method, are critically examined from the points of view of a non-element interpolation of the ®eld variables, and of the meshless numerical integration of the weak form to generate the stiffness matrix. As truly meshless methods, the MLPG and the LBIE methods hold a great promise in computational mechanics, because these methods do not require a mesh, either to… CONTINUE READING
