Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)

As the name suggests SPH uses a particle approach, which can consider objects to be either fluid or solid, and these can again interact with traditional finite element models. Both approaches allow complex fluid structural interactions to be modelled, as well as high strain and other extreme events that challenge more traditional modelling techniques. Applications include the following: Birdstrikes, hydrodynamic loadings, forming, mixing, forging, cutting, ballistics, explosions.
