Meshless method choosing Heaviside step function as a test function for solving simply supported thin plates under various loads is presented in this paper. The shape functions using regular and irregular nodal distribution as well as order of polynomial basis choice are constructed by moving kriging interpolation. Alternatively, two-field-variable local weak forms are used in order to decompose the governing equation, biharmonic equation, into a couple of Poisson equations and then impose

Comparing to an exact solution, this robust method gives significantly accurate numerical results, implementing by maximum relative error and root mean square relative error. ª 2014 The Authors.
