My question is actually if there is any technique to compute implicitly the smooth kernel W. Thank you in advance, Etiene

There exists a paper that deals with implicit SPH conduction modeling: Modeling Transient Heat Transfer Using SPH and Implicit Time Integration Rusty Rook; Mehmet Yildiz; Sadik Dost Num. Heat Transfer, Part B, 51, 1-23. What do you mean by computing the kernel implicitly ?

 March 5, 2008, 08:25 Re: Implicit SPH #3 Tiago Etiene Queiroz Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, Thank you for your answer. I read the paper you've recommended and things starts to became clearer. I'm trying to solve the following equation: rho * dv/dt = - grad P, (I) rho is the density, v is velocity, t is time d/dt is the derivative in time, grad is the gradient and P the pressure field. What I really meant about computing the kernel implicit is that the kernel W(r) is a function of r = xi - xj, which is the relative position. In the beginning I was thinking that a implicit method in time would compute W not in the current time t but in t + 1 instead, which means compute r in time t+1 (unlike the paper you've cited, my particles can move trhough the domain). In this scenario, I would have a more complicated equation implicit in time, for instance, the SPH discretization of Equation (I) could be: dv/dt = sum(j) { Vj * (P_j(t+1)/rho_j(t+1)^2 + P_i(t+1)/rho_i(t+1)^2) * grad W_ij(t+1) } where W is the kernel, rho is the density and V is the volume of a particle. Thanks!
