This paper aims to develop an effective meshless technique for the analysis of elasto-plastic problems. The material nonlinearity will be studied by a new pseudo-elastic local radial point interpolation formulation which is based on the local Petrov-Galerkin form and the radial basis function (RBF) interpolation. Hencky’s total deformation theory is used to define the effective Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio, which are treated as spatial field variables, and considered as functions of the final stress state and material properties. These effective material parameters are obtained in an iterative manner using the strain controlled projection method. Several numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effectivity of the newly developed formulation, and the numerical results obtained by the present method closely agree with the results obtained by other methods. It has proven that the present pseudo-elastic local meshless method is effective and easy to apply to the analysis of elasto-plastic materials subjected to proportional loading

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
