This paper describes current work on the implementation of non-trivial boundary conditions (BCs) for improving the general applicability of the Material Point Method (MPM) to geotechnical boundary values problems. It summarises novel boundary treatments (non-trivial BCs) in MPM for (i) flow conditions, as well as (ii) the application of a surface traction on a moving boundary for solid materials. Both treatments are required, for example, to estimate the consequence of slope failure in geotechnical engineering. the flow condition BCs have been used to stimulate a subcritical flow and the surface traction BC has been applied on top of aslope leading to failure. Both examples show that these new treatments are useful in solving practical problems.
