Recent developments of free mesh method. (English) Zbl 0955.74080
This paper presents the recent advances on the free mesh method by the authors. In this method, elements are locally created at each node in an autonomous manner, so that only nodal information is necessary without global meshing. The method has been tested with various applications such as heat conduction, fluid and fracture analyses, and reliable solutions were obtained with good parallel efficiency. Modifications of free mesh method have been further proposed, and the accuracy of solution has been improved.
