We present a displacement-based Galerkin meshfree method for the analysis of nearly-incompressible linear elastic solids, where low-order simplicial tessellations (i.e., 3- node triangular or 4-node tetrahedral meshes) are used as a background structure for numerical integration of the weak form integrals and to get the nodal information for the computation of the meshfree basis functions. In this approach, a volume- averaged nodal projection operator is constructed to project the dilatational strain into an approximation space of equal- or lower-order than the approximation space for the displacement field resulting in a locking-free method. The stability of the method is provided via bubble-like basis functions. Because the notion of an ‘ele- ment’ or ‘cell’ is not present in the computation of the meshfree basis functions such low-order tessellations can be used regardless of the order of the approximation spaces desired. First- and second-order meshfree basis functions are chosen as a particular case in the proposed method. Numerical examples are provided in two and three dimensions to demonstrate the robustness of the method, its ability to avoid volumetric locking in the nearly-incompressible regime, and its improved performance when compared to the MINI finite element scheme on the simplicial mesh.

We present a generalisation of the meshfree method for incompressible elasticity developed in Ortiz et al. (10.1016/j.cma.2010.02.013). We begin with the classical u-p mixed formulation of incompressible elasticity before eliminating the pressure using a volume-averaged nodal projection technique. This results in a family of projection methods of the type Q_p/Q_p-1 where Q_p is an approximation space of polynomial order p. These methods are particularly robust on low-quality tetrahedral meshes. Our framework is generic with respects to the type meshfree basis function used and includes various types of existing finite element methods such as B-bar and nodal-pressure techniques. As a particular example, we use maximum-entropy basis functions to build a scheme Q_1+/Q_1 with the displacement field being enriched with bubble-like functions for stability. The flexibility of the nodal placement in meshfree methods allows us to demonstrate the importance of this bubble-like enrichment for stability; with no bubbles the pressure field is liable to oscillations, whilst with bubbles the oscillation is eliminated. Interestingly however with half the bubbles removed, a scheme we call Q_1*/_Q_1, certain undesirable tendencies of the full bubble scheme are also eliminated. This has important applications in non-linear hyperelasticity. We also discuss some difficulties associated with moving to second-order maximum entropy shape functions associated with numerical integration errors. [less ▲]
