A pseudo-elastic local meshless formulation is developed in this paper for elasto-plastic analysis of solids. The moving least square (MLS) is used to construct the meshless shape functions, and the weighted local weak-form is employed to derive the system of equations. Hencky's total deformation theory is applied to define the effective Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio in the nonlinear analysis, which are obtained in an iterative manner using the strain controlled projection method. Numerical studies are presented for the elasto-plastic analysis of solids by the newly developed meshless formulation. It has demonstrated that the present pseudo-elastic local meshless approach is very effective for the elasto-plastic analysis of solids.

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.
