Abstract
The aim of this chapter is to provide an in-depth presentation and survey of meshfree particle methods. Several particle approximations are reviewed; the SPH method, corrected gradient methods and the moving least squares (MLS) approximation. The discrete equations are derived from a collocation scheme or a Galerkin method. Special attention is paid to the treatment of essential boundary conditions. A brief review of radial basis functions is given because they play a signi¯cant role in meshfre...
