A review of the meshless formulations based on local boundary integral equation (LBIE) methods is presented. Physical quantities are approximated by the moving least-squares method. A summary of recent developments in the applications of the LBIE method for potential problems, elastostatics, elastodynamics, thermoelasticity, and plate bending problems is given. The efficiency and generality of the present formulation in a wide class of engineering problems is documented.
