Meshless Methods using kernel approximation like Reproducing Kernel Particle Method (RKPM) are methods for solving partial differential equations that require only nodal data and a description of the geometry without requiring element connectivity data and mesh producing. An innovative method of nonplanar material partitioning method (NMPM) with implementation of RKPM is employed to calculate the stress intensity factor (SIF) at the tip of an anticrack sited in an isotropic plate under a remote applied loading. Numerical examples in comparison with the exact closed form expressions show that accurate SIF for mode I can be obtained.

An accurate numerical methodology for capturing the field quantities a center lamellar inhomogeneity within the interface of two different phases of a bimaterial rectangular plate subjected to non-uniform tensile stress, in the context of reproducing kernel particle method (RKPM), is of particular interest. For this purpose the innovative numerical technique, so-called extended augmented corrected collocation method is introduced; this technique is an extension of the augmented corrected collocation method used for imposing continuity condition of the displacement at the interface. The robustness of this methodology is shown by solving problems of material discontinuities, namely plates...
