We study ductile fracture using Reproducing Kernel Particle Interpolation and the Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman (GTN) model. The meshless simulations are compared with the available experimental results and previous finite element simulations for crack propagation. The results agree well with experimental results, and it is confirmed that the proposed method provides a convenient and yet accurate means for simulation of ductile fracture.
