Workshop topics

Novelty from previous workshops: with the recent creation of the SPHERIC Grand Challenge Working Group, a particular attention will be given to papers related to the theory of SPH.

Computational Modelling using SPH

  • Free Surface and Moving Boundaries Applications
  • Solids and Structures
  • Multiple Continua and Multi-Phase Flows
  • Modelling of Viscosity and Turbulence
  • Modelling of Incompressible Flows
  • Complex Physics

Theoretical and Numerical Aspects of SPH (SPHERIC Grand Challenges)

  • Convergence
  • Numerical Stability
  • Boundary conditions
  • Adaptivity (variable resolution)


  • High-Performance Computing
  • Hardware Acceleration
  • Pre-processing and visualization

Alternative Formulations and Particle-Based Simulation Technique

  • Alternative approaches such as Voronoi-particle, FV-particle, adaptive SPH (e.g. RSPH, ASPH)
  • New applications of SPH (e.g. shallow-water)

SPH Applications

  • Hydraulic Applications
  • Maritime and Naval Architecture Applications
  • Process Engineering
  • Geotechnical Applications
