(i) The first talk aims to (a) Iso-geometric analysis whose focus is to closely tie the geometry, i.e. CAD data to the analysis; (b) the extended/generalized FEM (X/GFEM) where one of the aims is to increase the independence between the problem solved and the mesh. (c) Strain smoothing in finite elements allows decreasing the negative effects of mesh distortion, and (d) polygonal finite element method where the constraint on the mesh topology is relaxed.

(ii)The second talk aims to discuss the recent advances and applications of the semi-analytical displacement method, the scaled boundary finite element method (SBFEM) will be discussed. Since its inception, it has been applied to wider class of problem, in particular, to problems with singularity and strong discontinuities. After giving a brief overview of the SBFEM, the recent advances that include the SBFEM’s application to adaptive stress analysis, extension to nearly incompressible media and to study cracks in functionally graded piezoelectric materials will be presented
