Abstract

This work develops a meshfree method for the analysis of 3D-shell structure based on the modified first order shear deformation theory. The present meshfree method is based on the radial point interpolation method (RPIM) for the construction of the shape functions with Delta function property using arbitrarily distributed nodes in the support domains. The first order shear deformation theory is improved in this work in order to correct the constant shear strains with the Mindlin-Reissner theory and to get closer to its realistic distribution through the thickness with parabolic curves. The accuracy and convergence of the proposed model is compared to results presented in the literature.
