SPH & ISPG for Flu­id, Struc­ture, & FSI Problems


This course overviews the SPH and ISPG for­mu­la­tions. We will dis­cuss the the­o­ret­i­cal back­ground and im­ple­men­ta­tion. We will al­so present the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing cou­pling these meth­ods with the La­grange for­mu­la­tion in LS-DY­NA®. We will al­so em­pha­size the ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of these meth­ods and the suit­abil­i­ty of these meth­ods for var­i­ous ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing flu­id and sol­id sim­u­la­tions. We will give de­tailed de­scrip­tions of the da­ta re­quired to run LS-DY­NA analy­ses. Ex­am­ples il­lus­trate points made in the lec­ture.
