Background and Motivation Mesh-dependent numerical methods are commonly used. However, meshing and remeshing in traditional numerical methods is a tedious work. Can numerical methods be done without meshing? Meshless method! How does the meshless method apply to groundwater modeling? 2

Types of meshless method Common used meshless methods (1) Domain-type - Global Radial basis function collocation method (RBFCM) - Localized radial basis function collocation method (LRBFCM) (2) Boundary-type -Method of fundamental solution (MFS) -Method of particular solution (MPS) -Trefftz method (TM) Node distribution for MFS (Young et al. 2006) Node-distribution for RBFCM (Hu et al. 2007) 3

Conclusions 1. Meshless method can be a useful tool for groundwater modeling 2. The shape parameter c has a strong relation with nodal arrangement. 3. Numerical errors is higher for meshless modeling with Neumann boundary condition. 4. Numerical errors is higher for meshless modeling with cylindrical coordinate. 5. Apply non-uniformly-distributed nodes in MQ-RBFCM, the total number of node can be dramatically reduced. 21

Literature review Hardy (1971) developed the algorithm for scattered data interpolation by MQ-RBF. Tarwater (1985) found that by increasing c in MQ-RBF, the error dropped to a minimum then increase sharply. Kansa (1990) first applied MQ-RBF in solving partial differential equations. Carlson and Foley (1991) concluded that c is problem- dependent. Zerroukat et al. (1998) applied Kansa’s algorithm for heat transfer problem and found the system became “ill- conditioned” by increasing number of nodes and c. 34

Literature review Mai-Duy and Tran-Cong (2001) applied different density of uniform-distributed nodes in solving differential equations by MQ-RBFCM. Wang and Liu (2002) studied the optimal chose for shape parameter in different RBFs and in different distribution of nodes. (uniformly-distributed nodes and randomly- distributed node) Amaziane et al. (2004) found that Neumann boundary condition seriously affect hydraulic head. 35
