The goal of this minisymposium is to bring together experts working on these methods, share research results and identify the emergent needs towards more rapid progress in advancing the important fields of meshfree, peridynamic and particle methods. Topics of interest for this minisymposium include, but are not limited to the following:

• Fundamental developments
• Handling stationary and transient strong and weak discontinuities
• Formulations for extreme material distortion, fragmentation, contact and impact, and material instability
• Numerical integration
• Strong form collocation meshfree methods
• Rank stability, kernel stability, and other stability issues
• Simulation of classes of problems for which meshfree, peridynamics, and particle methods are superior to conventional mesh-based methods
• Parallel-computing, scalable algorithms, and large-scale simulations
• Multiple and coupled physics
• Multiple time and/or length scales
• Multi-phase (solid, fluid and gas) interactions
• Structural responses to extreme loading conditions such as blast, impact, and penetration
• Simulation of natural disasters like tsunamis, earthquakes, and landslides
• Simulation of manufacturing processes
• Simulation of bio and nano mechanics and material system responses
