Simulation of Angular Flow in a Shallow Basin Triggered by a Rotating Vertical Cylinder by SPH Method


Article Preview

A simple numerical model has been generated for developing a code of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method. Those will be modified and used for future research. In this computational research domain is a square that consists of a real particle and virtual particle as the boundary treatment. In the initial condition, particle occupies a certain position. Circular flow has been generated by a rotating vertical cylinder to produce shear velocity to the real particle. The particles movement has been observed during time integration. A physical model has been constructed to compare the numerical model. The movement of real particles on the numerical model agrees with the movement of water particles on the physical model.
