5th International DualSPHysics Users Workshop

This is a new announcement for the “5th International DualSPHysics Users Workshop”, to be held at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech, in Barcelona (Spain) on 23rd-25th March 2020.


These workshops are designed to be a very informal meeting occasion, ideal for a constructive exchange of ideas, to learn about DualSPHysics and get involved with the project. 

Don’t miss this event, which will include:

- Beta release of new version 5.0 exclusive for workshop participants.

- Keynotes given by developers explaining all these novelties of version 5.0.

- Practical sessions for user and developer levels.

- Presentations by delegates shown strengths and limitations when using DualSPHysics.

Release of beta version 5.0 of DualSPHysics package

The new version will include the following novelties:

- Coupling with MoorDyn library (http://www.matt-hall.ca/moordyn.html).

- New functionalities in the coupling with Project Chrono (https://projectchrono.org/).

- New density diffusion term (DDT).

- New rheology models, non-Newtonian formulations and multiphase flows.

- New boundary conditions: Modified Dynamic Boundary Conditions (MDBC).

- New stand-alone wave generation algorithm employing inlet/outlet conditions (WaveInlet).

- Improved documentation: XML_GUIDE for Inlet/Outlet, Chrono, MoorDyn, Rheological.


Practical sessions

Two different practical sessions will be organised the first day:

- Session 1 for users: Running test cases with graphical interface (https://design.sphysics.org/).

- Session 2 for developers: How to modify the source code: which files and functions to edit, compiling and running.


Abstracts for presentation

All delegates are encouraged to submit a 1-page abstract by 13th December 2019 if they wish to present their work. Instructions for abstract submission can be found at: https://dual.sphysics.org/5thusersworkshop/workshop/instructions-for-authors


Journal Special Issue

In addition, contributions of delegates may be selected for possible publication in a special issue of the journal Computational Particle Mechanics (https://link.springer.com/journal/40571), “Latest Developments and Application of SPH using DualSPHysics”.



The early bird rate (until 20th February 2020) is 230 € (180€ for students), which will include all refreshments during the whole event, lunch and dinner on the 24th March 2020.
