Non-Newtonian Validation

Dear DualSPHysics users,

Have you conducted validation studies for the non-Newtonian solver using experimental test data ?

  • Thanks Alex,

    I used the non-Newtonian solver to model a landslide case and I found that DualSPHysics overestimate the wave height generated by the landslide.

    Do you have any idea , why it happens?

    I appreciate your replying?

    Best regards,


  • You should email the main developer of that branch of the code: Dr Georgios Fourtakas.

    You should find his email contact in those papers


  • Thanks Alex,

    I sent an email to the main developers , however, I have not received a response yet. I am wondering if there is an alternative contact method or if you have any advice on the next steps?

    I appreciate it.
