Fluid Mechanics and the SPH Method: Theory and Applications

Damien Violeau


This book aims at presenting the SPH method for fluid modelling from a theoretical and applied viewpoint. It comprises two parts that refer to each other. The first, dealing with the fundamentals of Hydraulics, is based on the elementary principles of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics. The specific laws governing a system of macroscopic particles are built, then the large systems involving dissipative processes are explained. The continua are then discussed; lastly, a fairly exhaustive account of turbulence is given. The second part discloses the bases of the SPH Lagrangian numerical method ... More

Keywords: SPH, Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics, fluid mechanics, Lagrangian mechanics, weakly compressible flows, turbulent flows
