Theory and Applications of LS-DYNA SPH Method


        The objective of this course is to provide engineers with the fundamental theoretical background on the SPH formulation, the available formulations, implementations, and the latest developments of the SPH method coupled with the Lagrangian formulation in LS-DYNA. The class will emphasize on the advantages and disadvantages of the SPH method also on which SPH formulation is suitable for various applications including fluid and solid materials. Detailed descriptions of the data required to run LS-DYNA analysis are given. Examples are used to illustrate the points made in the lectures. To address some numerical issues of SPH in low-speed material failure analysis of solids and structures, a novel particle method SPG (Smoothed Particle Galerkin) is introduced with theoretical background, features, keywords and applications.

* Jingxiao Xu  Ph.D.
Received his Ph.D degree of Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University on 2004 then joined LSTC. He has been working on the meshfree methods and their applications since the day he joined LSTC. Currently he is developing and maintaining the code of the smoothed particle hydrodynamics of LS-DYNA and its’ application on high velocity impact, high explosive detonation, penetration, bird strike testing, multi-phase flows, fluid-structure interaction, thermal-structure coupling and so on.

* Youcai Wu  Ph.D.
Graduated from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) in 2005. Joined Karagozian & Case Inc. in January 2006, focusing on advanced LS-DYNA applications in structural analysis, concrete constitutive modeling and independent development of meshfree methods. Joined LSTC in 2015, focusing on development of advanced FEM and meshfree/particle methods and their applications in the integrated analysis of manufacturing and material failure and fragmentation processes.
