Analysis of Large Deformation Problems with Element Free Galerkin Method
Abstract Meshless method has obviously advantage in large deformation area, because there is no mesh needed, and no mesh distortion happens. Large deformation for plane problems are analyzed in this paper with mesh free galerkin method (EFGM). In order to improve the speed and the stability of computation, the three basic problems for moving least square method (MLS) in EFGM, which are the base function, the weight function and the influence area, are discussed in details, respectively. The values of each parameter used in this analysis are also listed. The examples show that the EFGM can solve some special problems that are difficult for the finite element method.
