Title:Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics: Fundamentals, projection schemes and computational considerations
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Nathaniel Trask, Applied Mathematics Department, Brown University
Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is a meshless collocation methods for solving PDEs with origins in solving astrophysics problems in the late 70's. Recently the method has gained popularity due to its ability to robustly simulate multiphase and low Reynolds number flows. In recent years the method has been put on more sound theoretical footing and many researchers are using the SPH discretization in the same algorithms that are typically used in finite element/volume codes. In this talk the fundamentals of SPH approximation will be reviewed with a focus on recent developments in error analysis and current work using a stiffly stable projection technique for low Reynolds number flows will be presented.
