SPHERIC Harbin 2020

The SPHERIC Harbin International Workshop,13-16th January 2020

The SPHERIC workshop is the only global event focusing exclusively on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methodology and related simulation approaches. In 2020,the SPHERIC Harbin International Workshop will be held at Harbin Engineering University. This is the second time held outside of Europe following the SPHERIC Beijing Workshop. The workshop is aimed at sharing the latest theoretical developments and practical applications of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method. All articles on algorithm innovation and engineering applications of SPH method are welcomed. Some of the research topics that will be covered during the workshop are:

  • SPHERIC grand challenges:
    • Convergence, consistency and stability (GC1)
    • Boundary conditions (GC2)
    • Adaptivity and variable resolution (GC3)
    • Coupling to other methods (GC4)
  • Interaction with solids and complex structures
  • Free surface flows and moving boundaries applications
  • Multi-phase flows and multiple continua
  • Viscosity and turbulence modelling
  • Incompressible flows
  • Numerics:
    • High-Performance Computing
    • Hardware acceleration and GPU computing
    • Adaptivity and variable resolution (GC3)
    • Visualization methods

Special attention will also be payed to the development of any potential applications of the SPH method. Some examples are:

  • SPHERIC grand challenges: Application to Industry (GC5)
  • Maritime and naval architecture applications
  • Hydraulic applications
  • Microfluidics
  • Astrophysics
  • Disaster simulations
  • Solids and Fracture Mechanic

Harbin is one of the eighth most populous Chinese cities and the largest city in the northeastern region of China. Harbin serves as a key political, economic, scientific, cultural, and communicational hub in Northeast China, as well as an important industrial base of the nation. We warmly welcome scholars and students from all over the world to attend this workshop this workshop in Harbin, and wish you a happy and satisfactory experience (in communicating, training and studying) here.

Organizer: Harbin Engineering University

Workshop address: No.185, Central Avenue, Daoli District, Harbin, Heilongjiang Province.
