SPlisHSPlasH is a Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulator that covers a wide range of applications. The simulator is usually configured by a single file with the extension .json. This file contains all the information about the simulation, including the geometry, the physical properties of the fluids, the boundary conditions, the numerical parameters, and the output files. Sometimes the configuration can also use extra geometry files.

Inductiva Benchmarks#

The following benchmarks are currently available for SPlisHSPlasH:

  • Three-Dimensional Currents: This benchmark replicates the S1 simulation as outlined in the paper “Modeled Three-Dimensional Currents and Eddies on an Alongshore-Variable Barred Beach”, authored by Christine M. Baker, Melissa Moulton, Britt Raubenheimer, Steve Elgar, and Nirnimesh Kumar (2021).
