SPH Method Applied to Naval-Hydrodynamic Problems

Andrea Colagrossi, Giuseppina Colicchio


Common problems in naval hydrodynamic and coastal engineering are the studies of general internal and external flows. Classic methods of solution have to face break down when dealing with large deformations and fragmentations of the air-water interface.
The Smoothed Particles Hydrodynamic (SPH) is an innovative numerical method of solution based on Lagrangian Meshless representation of the flow field. We have applied it to the study of some internal (sloshing and dam-break problem) and external flows (breaking and post-breaking evolution of bores propagation toward beaches and bow breaking waves generated by fast slender vessels).
