SPH particle vs. real fragment size
I am modelling high velocity impacts and the ejected fragments in SPH. In my model, the fragments I am interested in are each represented with a single SPH particle.
So, I can read that particle density, volume, cell mass. But, when I multiply volume and density I don't get the cell mass. I am aware of the kernel function, so maybe due to interpolation these numbers don't match? I have no insight in the details of SPH implementations in Autodyn, so I can't know how it's doing the calculations.
Also, what does Autodyn consider to be the characteristic length of SPH particle?
The bottom line is, I am in doubt now which parameters to consider as "real" and assign them as the measured real size of the ejected fragments.
Can anyone please help in clarifying this?
