    Abstract A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method is applied to solve thermal bending problems described by the Reissner-Mindlin theory. Both stationary and thermal shock loads are analyzed here. Functionally graded material properties with continuous variation in the plate thickness direction are considered here. The Laplace-transformation is used to treat the time dependence of the variables for transient problems. A weak formulation for the set of governing equations in the Reissner-Mindlin theory is transformed into local integral equations on local subdomains in the mean surface of the plate by using a unit test function. Nodal points are randomly spread on the surface… More >
