This course overviews the SPH and ISPG (incompressible smoothed particle Galerkin) formulations. We will discuss the theoretical background and implementation. We will also present the latest developments including coupling these methods with the Lagrange formulation in LS-DYNA. We will also emphasize the advantages and disadvantages of these methods and the suitability of these methods for various applications, including fluid and solid simulations. We will give detailed descriptions of the data required to run LS-DYNA analyses. Examples illustrate points made in the lecture.
- Introduction class of LS-DYNA.
