Point associated finite field (PAFF) approach


This is a meshfree computational environment based on the moving least squares approximation functions, compactly supported on spherical subdomains, used in a point collocation residual minimization technique. Advantages over traditional finite elements include not having to perform numerical integration, constant Jacobians which preclude distortions and smooth solutions.This is a meshfree computational environment based on the moving least squares approximation functions, compactly supported on spherical subdomains, used in a point collocation residual minimization technique.
