In this paper, compact local integrated radial basis function (RBF) stencils (Mai-Duy and Tran-Cong, 2011) are incorporated into the finite-volume formulation for the discretisation of second order differential problems. The unknown field variable and its derivatives are approximated using compact integrated RBFs defined on local regions that cover the problem domain. The governing equation is integrated over non-overlapping control volumes associated with nodes, and the divergence theorem is then applied to convert volume integrals into line integrals. Line integrals are evaluated by the middle point rule. The proposed scheme is numerically verified through the solution of several test problems including natural convection flows. Numerical results indicate that the proposed method outperforms the standard finite volume method.
