Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), 2-day course, February 2012, University of Manchester, UK

Posted By: B.D. Rogers
Date:Thu, 10 Nov 2011, 1:08 p.m.

The University of Manchester will be running a short course on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) suitable for engineers and scientists in early 2012:

2-3 February 2012, 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, injection moulding, 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 twice 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: 23 January 2012
