This paper reports a new numerical method based on radial basis function networks (RBFNs) for solving high-order partial differential equations (PDEs). The variables and their derivatives in the governing equations are represented by integrated RBFNs. The use of integration in constructing neural networks allows the straightforward implementation of multiple boundary conditions and the accurate approximation of high-order derivatives. The proposed RBFN method is verified successfully through the solution of thin-plate bending and viscous flow problems which are governed by biharmonic equations. For thermally driven cavity flows, the solutions are obtained up to a high Rayleigh number.
