SPH Projects

This section gives details of SPH projects underway at different places around the world. Would you like a short summary of your project to appear here with a link/contact? Please contact the webmaster.


NextMuSE (Next generation Multi-mechanics Simulation Environment) running from 2008-2012 was a collaborative project funded by the European Commission. Its objective is to advance SPH-based engineering simulation technology for challenging industrial applications. The project is delivering advances in SPH algorithms, user interface software and the analysis of large particle data sets. Contact: Dr David Le TouzĂ© (Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France). 
This project has now finished.

ESPHI - European SPH Initiative

ESPHI (2006-2009) was a 5-partner EU Marie-Curie project aimed to reinforce the collaboration between key SPH developers, researchers and users in U.K. (Univ. of Manchester), France (EDF & Ecole Centrale de Lyon) and Switzerland (VA TECH HYDRO & CSCS). The objective is to capitalize on the partners' respective strengths, thus inducing a strong impulse in EU, strengthening their collaboration, achieving industrial added value applications, and speeding up access to this technology within the EU for both academia and industry. The project is expected to generate some major improvements and advancements in the modelling and application of SPH to free-surface flows (particularly industrial applications). Important improvements are also envisaged in the pre- and post-processing facilities and visualizations. Contact: Dr Etienne Parkinson (VATECH HYDRO ANDRITZ, Switzerland).
