Abstract

A meshless collocation method is developed for the static analysis of plane problems of functionally graded (FG) elastic beams and plates under transverse mechanical loads using the differential reproducing kernel (DRK) interpolation, in which the DRK interpolant is constructed by the randomly distributed nodes. A point collocation method based on this DRK interpolation is developed for the plane stress and strain problems of homogeneous and FG elastic beams and plates. It is shown that the present DRK interpolation-based collocation method is indeed a truly meshless approach with excellent accuracy and has a fast convergence rate.
