Mini - symposium Title

MS002  Recent Developments and Applications of Meshfree Methods


Meshfree (meshless) methods offer flexibility in constructing spatial approximations without the limitations of pre-generated meshes. Based on the abovementioned advantages, meshfree methods have been developed and investigated in various research areas in recent years, including nonlinear and large deformation analysis, fracture mechanics, inverse problems, geomechanics, biomaterial modeling, fluid dynamics problems, extreme events modeling, fluid-structure interaction, and machine learning techniques. To date, numerous meshfree methods have been proposed, such as smoothed particle hydrodynamics, element-free Galerkin method, reproducing kernel particle method, material point method, generalized finite difference method, strong form collocation methods, peridynamics, physics-informed neural networks, deep energy method, etc. The objective of this mini-symposium aims to provide a platform to present and discuss the recent developments and applications of meshfree methods. This mini-symposium will serve as an excellent forum to exchange ideas, share experiences, and promote collaboration among researchers from engineering, mathematics, and industries.
