This book presents the SPH method (Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics) for fluid modelling from a theoretical and applied viewpoint. It comprises two parts that refer to each other. The first one, 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, before large systems involving dissipative processes are explained. The continua are discussed,

About the Author:


Damien Violeau, Senior Researcher in Applied Hydraulics at the R&D Division, EDF (Electricite de France)

Damien Violeau graduated from Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, one of the major French engineering colleges, and currently works as 'Expert Researcher' at the National Hydraulics and Environment Laboratory of the R&D branch of EDF (Electricite de France). During 15 years of experience in engineering for waterworks and computational fluid dynamics, he has focused on the Lagrangian modelling of turbulent flows through the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics numerical method, SPH. He has also been acting as an organiser of the SPH international community through the working group SPHERIC (SPH European Research Interest Group).

Review:

"This is an unconventional, deep and broad-ranging treatment of mathematical fluid mechanics, leading to the development of SPH for complex engineering applications involving turbulent free-surface flow. The book is built on careful development of theory from Lagrangian, statistical and
variational principles, underpinned by strong physical reasoning. For graduate students in engineering and physics, particularly those with an interest in SPH, this will be a valuable reference, and there are fresh insights for the most expert reader."

--Nathan Quinlan, National University of Ireland Galway

"The book will serve as an invaluable guide and introduction to anyone interested in 'how and why SPH works'. This text will take them into the heart of the method to the most fundamental basic principles, and give them the definitive background on the technique. The book will be particularly
useful for graduate research students and practicing engineers. Furthermore, as SPH is now beginning to be part of university degree courses, this is possibly the only book that covers all the areas needed for further reading and study."

--Benedict Rogers, School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, University of Manchester
