Announcement of 2-day Course on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), April 2010

Posted By: Benedict Rogers
Date:Fri, 8 Jan 2010, 7:24 p.m.

The University of Manchester will be running a short course on SPH suitable for engineers in late spring:

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)

8-9 April 2010, University of Manchester, UK:

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, 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 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

- Visualization techniques

Deadline for registration: 31 March 2010
