This paper presents a novel and accurate technique for modeling discontinuous derivatives in meshfree methods, which will be used in the analysis of structures with material interfaces. The novelty lies in the formulation of the Moving Least Squares Approximation (MLSA) scheme where an introduced discontinuous derivative basis function replaces the conventional linear basis function. Furthermore, it is easy to implement this novelty into existing meshfree methods, such as the Element Free Galerkin (EFG) method, which are based on the MLSA scheme. The successful analyses of one and two-dimensional structures with material interfaces demonstrate the potential of the proposed technique.
