A Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method for free and forced vibration analyses for solids
Gu, YuanTong & Liu, Gui-Rong (2001) A Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method for free and forced vibration analyses for solids. Computational Mechanics, 27(3), pp. 188-198.
The Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is an effective truly meshless method for solving partial differential equations using Moving Least Squares (MLS) interpolants and local weak forms. In this paper, a MLPG formulation is proposed for free and forced vibration analyses. Local weak forms are developed using weighted residual method locally from the dynamic partial differential equation. In the free vibration analysis, the essential boundary conditions are implemented through the direct interpolation form and imposed using orthogonal transformation techniques. In the forced vibration analysis, the penalty method is used in implementation essential boundary conditions. Two different time integration methods are used and compared in the forced vibration analyses using the present MLPG method. The validity and efficiency of the present MLPG method are demonstrated through a number of examples of two-dimensional solids.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
