RECENT DEVELOPEMENTS ON THE USE OF FDM IN ELASTICITY ANALYSIS

Computational field of solid mechanics is mostly dominated by FEM.   This is a well known topic.

But is it that  FDM (finite difference method) has no chance of surviving
in solid mechanics?

What are the present developments in the use of FDM in case of elasticity analysis of solid body?

I would like to mention some of the recent research works on this topic here.....

FEM Is Not a Local Method (and It Isn't Global Either)

In the literature, FEM has sometimes been characterized as a local approach, but IMO this needs to be corrected.

The piecewise continuous trial-functions of FEM can be looked at from two different viewpoints:

Why not use FDM in solid mechanics?

Finite Difference Method (FDM) and the related techniques such as FVM, are often found put to great use in fluid mechanics. See any simulation showing not only streamlines but also vortex shedding, turbulent mixing, etc.
