SPH animations

plunching wave

This animation shows a plunching wave, calculated with SPH.

The particles in SPH carry all the flow quantities and move with their own velocity. Interaction between particles is not calculated with a mesh, but with a smoothing function. No special treatment of the free surface is needed, it is simply the transition between an area with particles and without.
