Understand How to Use and Develop Meshfree Techniques
An Update of a Groundbreaking Work

Reflecting the significant advances made in the field since the publication of its predecessor, Meshfree Methods: Moving Beyond the Finite Element Method, Second Edition systematically covers the most widely used meshfree methods. With 70% new material, this edition addresses important new developments, especially on essential theoretical issues.

New to the Second Edition

  • Much more details on fundamental concepts and important theories for numerical methods
  • Discussions on special properties of meshfree methods, including stability, convergence, accurate, efficiency, and bound property
  • More detailed discussion on error estimation and adaptive analysis using meshfree methods
  • Developments on combined meshfree/finite element method (FEM) models
  • Comparison studies using meshfree and FEM

Drawing on the author's own research, this book provides a single-source guide to meshfree techniques and theories that can effectively handle a variety of complex engineering problems. It analyzes how the methods work, explains how to use and develop the methods, and explores the problems associated with meshfree methods.
