SPH applied to hydraulic works

Preview

Applications of SPH are presented here, up to the three-dimensional viewpoint under real conditions. The examples chosen are selected from real studies in water engineering: the design of coastal defence, coastal pollution management, and river waterworks. Focus is thus made on environmental flows, according to the author’s experience. The ability of SPH to deal with such flows is investigated in each case. The quality of the results are partially compared to theoretical results derived from the considerations of Chapters 3 and 4, or to experimental results obtained from the similarity considerations of Chapter 3.

Keywords: SPH; application cases; free-surface flows; coastal structures; river waterworks
