The suitability of integrating the corresponding weak form with background cells by element free Galerkin method is discussed. In the element free Galerkin method, the connectivity of nodes is not necessary in pre-processing. The weak form is usually integrated with Gaussian-background cell, and the integration cells may not fall into the integration domain completely as the integration cell is independent of the integration domain. Then the location of the integration point is taken as the judging principle for integration. However, the accuracy and stability may be influenced by integration point weighting, and the weighting values of collocation integration are the same, which is different from the Gaussian quadrature. Therefore, acceptable results may be obtained if the number of integration points is large enough. The main purpose of this research is coupling Gaussian quadrature and collocation integration, and the coupled method is compared with traditional Gaussian quadrature method and collocation integration method, which proves the superiority of the coupling method.
