Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)
This 2 day course on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is aimed at practising engineers and graduate researchers in all fields of fluid flow simulation who wish to discover the latest research and applications in the novel field of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). This course is aimed at the beginner and will cover, basic and theoretical concepts, latest innovations, applications to cases in industry and visualisation techniques.
Date: April 8, 2010 - April 9, 2010
Location: University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom
Web Page:
Application Areas: General CFD
Special Fields: Flows with Particles
Deadlines: March 31, 2010 (registration)
Type of Event: Course, International

This 2-day course is intended for professionals and graduate
students in areas of engineering fluid mechanics including
coastal and shallow water hydrodynamics, ballistics, nuclear
flows, marine, structures, fluid/structure interaction,
sloshing , flooding, debris, slurry and other flows such as
injection moulding. SPH is a meshless computational method
for potentially highly violent fluid flows where there is
very large deformation with arbitrarily complex moving
boundaries. Manchester has been researching SPH for many
years and is one of the few locations in the world with
expertise in both compressible and incompressible methods
with acceleration on novel computer hardware.

Guest lecturers on the course will include world experts
from Ecole Centrale de Lyon (ECL) in France and Electricité
de France (EDF) presenting the state-of-the-art application
of SPH to hydraulic machines along with turbulence and
industrial flow cases.

Topics include: The course will consist of an introduction
to SPH with a special emphasis on presenting the basic and
fundamental concepts of the technique, then moving onto some
of the latest state-of-the-art developments:

- Basic theoretical concepts,
- The latest innovations
- Applications to cases in industry, and
- Visualization techniques
