Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), 2-day course, January 2013, University of Manchester, UK
The University of Manchester will be running a 2-day short course on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) suitable for engineers and scientists in 24-25 January 2013: SPH is a meshless computational method for potentially highly violent fluid flows where there is very large deformation with arbitrarily complex moving boundaries including coastal and shallow water hydrodynamics, and other flows such as marine, structures, fluid/structure interaction, sloshing, flooding, debris, slurry, etc.
Date: January 24, 2012 - January 25, 2012

Description:

This 2-day course is intended for professionals and graduate students in areas of engineering fluid mechanics including coastal and shallow water hydrodynamics, and other flows such as marine, structures, fluid/structure interaction, sloshing, flooding, debris, slurry, etc. 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 academia and industry including Electricité de France (EDF), University of Vigo in Spain and Andritz in Switzerland presenting the state-of-the-art application of SPH to coastal defences, hydraulic machines along with turbulence, industrial flow cases and GPUs. This course has run three times before with very positive feedback from delegates.

Topics included: 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
• Running simulations and Visualization techniques

Deadline for registration: 15 January 2013
