We propose a novel numerical approach based on incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics and moving integrated radial basis function networks method, namely ISPH-MIRBFN, for solving incompressible viscous flow problems. In the ISPH method, the pressure is acquired from solving Poisson equation. In the present approach, the pressure Poisson equation is solved on a set of MIRBFN nodal points and the obtained results are then transferred to the SPH particles. The performance of the present method is investigated through several numerical examples including spin-down vortex, flows in a lid-driven closed-cavity and a lid-driven open-cavity with a prescribed bottom wall motion. Numerical results show that the proposed method reduces the spurious pressure fluctuations, yields a smoother pressure-field solution and maintains the computational efficiency when compared to the ISPH.
