The governing equations for rate-independent large strain plasticity are formulated in the framework of meshless method. The numerical procedures, including return mapping algorithm, to obtain the solutions of boundary-value problems in computational plasticity are outlined. The crack growth process in elastic-plastic solid under plane strain conditions is analyzed. The large strain plastic response of material under high-speed impact is simulated. Numerical results are presented and discussed.
