A comparison of two formulations to blend finite elements and mesh-free methods
Rights accessOpen Access
Mesh-free methods have since their early developments been blended to the finite element formulation in order to benefit from the advantages of both numerical techniques. In this paper, two recently proposed formulations to couple mesh-free and finite element methods are discussed and compared.
