Abstract: In this paper a new coupling method to merge the Reproducing Kernel Particle Method (RKPM) and the Boundary Element Method (BEM) is proposed. In this formulation, the whole problem domain will first be divided into two subdomains in which the RKPM and the BEM are applied respectively. A simple and direct coupling procedure is then applied to preserve the compatibility of the solution along the interface of the two subdomains. Unlike other coupling procedures suggested previously, the present coupling procedure neither requires modification of the RKPM and the BEM formulations nor the use of finite elements along the interface boundary between the two subdomains. The validity and efficiency of the coupling procedure are demonstrated by using it to solve five benchmark elastostatic stress analysis problems. In addition, a simple analysis of the a priori convergence rate of the coupling procedure is given. Preliminary assessment of the convergence characteristics of the coupling procedure is done by carrying out uniform refinements on the benchmark problems.
