This paper proposes a methodology for the continuous blending of the finite element method and Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics. The coupled approximation with finite elements and particles, and the discretization of the boundary value problem with a coupled integration, are described. An integration correction is also proposed to stabilize the solution. Some numerical examples demonstrate the applicability of the method.
