The presentation slides (downloadable as PowerPoint and PDF) describe the basic principles and application advantages of the material point method (MPM).

  1. Could you post a .pdf version of this presentation? The equations from slide 10 onward are not rendering properly in LibreOffice 3.5 (Ubuntu 12.04). Thanks!

    • New version is posted as zip file, but likely to still have rendering problems if using anything but PowerPoint on a PC, not mac or Linux (thanx alot Microsoft). I even noticed that Adobe PDF printer couldn’t make the PDF — had to use PDFcreator. Sigh.

  2. Hi

    The link to download the slides no longer works. Could you please fix it?

    Many thanks
