Abstract
The paper examines the possibilities of extending the Particle finite element methods (PFEM), which have been successfully applied in fluid mechanics, to solid mechanics problems. After a review of the fundamentals of the method, their specific features in solid mechanics are presented. A methodology to face contact problems, the anticipating contact interface mesh, is presented on the basis of a penalty-like constitutive models for imposing the contact and friction conditions. Finally, the PFEM...
