In this paper, we investigate the use of radial basis functions for solving Poisson problems with a near-singular inhomogeneous source term. The solution of the Poisson problem is first split into two parts: near-singular solution and smooth solution. A method for evaluating the near-singular particular solution is examined. The smooth solution is further split into a particular solution and a homogeneous solution. The MPS-DRM approach is adopted to evaluate the smooth solution.
