Enhancing the robustness of meshfree Galerkin methods for solid mechanics simulations using the virtual element decomposition

2018 – 2021 Principal Investigator: Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin. Project funded by CONICYT-FONDECYT (Grant Nº 1181192) Meshfree methods have several attributes that make them attractive for simulation in mechanics. Two important ones are summarized as follows. The meshfree approximation is independent of the definition of a finite element mesh — the approximation is constructed based solely on nodal locations….
