Robust and thoroughly developed for stress analysis, the Finite Element Method is currently used to solve most of the engineering problems related to solids and structures. However, the limitations of this method are becoming increasingly evident, and a new and powerful technique that overcomes those limitations is now emerging. Developed by the author and his research team, the mesh free method employs adaptive meshing to very effectively handle a variety of mechanics problems, including linear and nonlinear, static, and dynamics stress analysis. This book systematically covers the basic theories, principles, techniques, procedures, and applications of the mesh free method.
