Abstract
In this work, a Meshless approach for nonlinear solid mechanics is developed based on the Element Free Galerkin method. Furthermore, Meshless is combined with an elastoplastic model coupled to ductile damage. The efficiency of the proposed methodology is evaluated through various numerical examples. Besides these, two-dimensional tensile tests under several boundary conditions were studied and solved by a Dynamic-Explicit resolution scheme. Finally, the results obtained from the numerical simulations are analyzed and critically compared with Finite Element Method results.
