A method is presented for the solution of Poisson’s Equations using a Lagrangian formulation. The interpolation functions are the Lagrangian operation of those used in the classical finite element method, which automatically satisfy boundary conditions exactly even though there are no nodes on the boundaries of the domain. The integration is introduced in an implicit way by using approximated step functions. Classical surface integration terms used in the weak form are unnecessary due to the interpolation function in the Lagrangian formulation. Furthermore, the Lagrangian formulation simplified the connection between the mesh and the solid structures, thus providing a very easy way to solve the problems without a conforming mesh.
