A reproducing kernel particle method for meshless analysis of microelectromechanical systems
 

Summary: A reproducing kernel particle method for meshless analysis
of microelectromechanical systems
N. R. Aluru
Abstract Many existing computer-aided design systems
for microelectromechanical systems require the generation
of a three-dimensional mesh for computational analysis of
the microdevice. Mesh generation requirements for mic-
rodevices are very complicated because of the presence of
mixed-energy domains. Point methods or meshless
methods do not require the generation of a mesh, and
computational analysis can be performed by sprinkling
points covering the domain of the microdevice. A cor-
rected smooth particle hydrodynamics approach also re-
ferred to as the reproducing kernel particle method is
developed here for microelectromechanical applications. A
correction function that establishes the consistency and
the stability of the meshless method is derived. A simple
approach combining the constraint elimination and the
Lagrange multiplier technique is developed for imposition
of boundary conditions. Numerical results are shown for
