A nodal integration scheme for meshfree Galerkin methods using the virtual element decomposition

International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering Accepted Manuscript. R. Silva-Valenzuela, A. Ortiz-Bernardin, N. Sukumar, E. Artioli,  N. Hitschfeld-Kahler Abstract In this paper, we present a novel nodal integration scheme for meshfree Galerkin methods that draws on the mathematical framework of the virtual element method. We adopt linear maximum-entropy basis functions for the discretization of…

Consistent and stable meshfree Galerkin methods using the virtual element decomposition

International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering Volume 112, Issue 7, 2017, pp 655-684 A. Ortiz-Bernardin, A. Russo, N. Sukumar Abstract Over the past two decades, meshfree methods have undergone significant development as a numerical tool to solve partial differential equations (PDEs). In contrast to finite elements, the basis functions in meshfree methods are smooth (nonpolynomial functions),…
