Euler angles Euler angles, one of the possible ways to describe an orientation.
Advantages[ edit ] By construction, SPH is a meshfree methodwhich makes it ideally suited to simulate problems dominated by complex boundary dynamics, like free surface flows, or large boundary displacement.
On top of that, the lack of a mesh significantly simplifies the model implementation and its parallelization, even for many-core architectures. As discussed in section on weakly compressible SPHthe method has great conservation features. The computational cost of SPH simulations per number of particles is significantly less than the cost of grid-based simulations per number of cells when the metric of interest is related to fluid density e.
Limitations[ edit ] Setting boundary conditions in SPH such as inlets and outlets  and walls  is more difficult than with grid-based methods. In fact, it has been stated that "the treatment of boundary conditions is certainly one of the most difficult technical points of the SPH method".
Fluid dynamics[ edit ] Fig. This is due to several benefits over traditional grid-based techniques. First, SPH guarantees conservation of mass without extra computation since the particles themselves represent mass.
Second, SPH computes pressure from weighted contributions of neighboring particles rather than by solving linear systems of equations. Finally, unlike grid-based techniques, which must track fluid boundaries, SPH creates a free surface for two-phase interacting fluids directly since the particles represent the denser fluid usually water and empty space represents the lighter fluid usually air.
For these reasons, it is possible to simulate fluid motion using SPH in real time. For gas dynamics it is more appropriate to use the kernel function itself to produce a rendering of gas column density e. One drawback over grid-based techniques is the need for large numbers of particles to produce simulations of equivalent resolution.
In the typical implementation of both uniform grids and SPH particle techniques, many voxels or particles will be used to fill water volumes that are never rendered. However, accuracy can be significantly higher with sophisticated grid-based techniques, especially those coupled with particle methods such as particle level setssince it is easier to enforce the incompressibility condition in these systems.
SPH for fluid simulation is being used increasingly in real-time animation and games where accuracy is not as critical as interactivity. Recent work in SPH for fluid simulation has increased performance, accuracy, and areas of application: Talebbeydokhti,propose a hybrid algorithm for implementation of solid boundary condition and simulate flow over a sharp crested weir  S.
SPH is used to model hydrodynamic flows, including possible effects of gravity. Incorporating other astrophysical processes which may be important, such as radiative transfer and magnetic fields is an active area of research in the astronomical community, and has had some limited success.
The main advantage of SPH in this application is the possibility of dealing with larger local distortion than grid-based methods. This feature has been exploited in many applications in Solid Mechanics: Another important advantage of meshfree methods in general, and of SPH in particular, is that mesh dependence problems are naturally avoided given the meshfree nature of the method.
In particular, mesh alignment is related to problems involving cracks and it is avoided in SPH due to the isotropic support of the kernel functions. However, classical SPH formulations suffer from tensile instabilities  and lack of consistency. Many other recent studies can be found in the literature devoted to improve the convergence of the SPH method.
Recent improvements in understanding the convergence and stability of SPH have allowed for more widespread applications in Solid Mechanics. Other examples of applications and developments of the method include:Rank of Keywords of International Conferences on August 9, LNCS 37 SIGGRAPH 32 CRYPTOGRAPHY: 31 ENERGY: 30 AAAI 28 KDD I've been using FEniCS for a while for my Master of Science's thesis, learning from the Tutorial, and I consider this book the "book" for Finite Elements enthusiasts.
