SPH-flow
Very innovative solver based on particles discretization, with Lagranien, compressible and explicit resolution. SPH-flow is dedicated to the simulation of flows with very high dynamics (impact, sloshing, slamming ...), flows over complex geometries and topologies (flooding ...), flows around moving or deformable bodies, or the simulation of coupled fluid / structure problems. SPH-flow has been developed by ECN and HydrOcean under a consortium, with funding from major industrial partners.Access to the full description and validation test cases ...

Our originality and vision :

  • We dispose of a wide range of numerical tools validated on many test cases in order to respond accurately and quickly to the issues confronting you.

  • We aim to develop specific numerical solvers for marine applications with our R & D team, in partnership with an internationally renowned laboratory, the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides (Mechanical Fluids Laboratory) - Ecole Centrale Nantes / CNRS.

  • We use and develop these numerical tools with engineers and PhD graduates in fluid dynamics simulation applying their highly specific knowledge of the marine fields and the viability of situations.
