Item description for Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics: The State of the Art (Advanced Series in Nonlinear Dynamics) by William G. Hoover...

This book takes readers through all the steps necessary for solving hard problems in continuum mechanics with smooth particle methods. Pedagogical problems clarify the generation of initial conditions, the treatment of boundary conditions, the integration of the equations of motion, and the analysis of the results. Particular attention is paid to the parallel computing necessary for large problems and to the graphic displays, including debugging software, required for the efficient completion of computational projects. The book is self-contained, with summaries of classical particle mechanics and continuum mechanics for both fluids and solids, computer languages, the stability of numerical methods, Lyapunov spectra, and message-passing parallel computing. The main difficulties faced by meshless particle methods are discussed and the means of overcoming them are illustrated with worked examples.

Reviews - What do customers think about Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics: The State of the Art (Advanced Series in Nonlinear Dynamics)?

Useful  Jan 10, 2008
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in applying SPAM/SPH to problems in continuum mechanics. It is a great starting point from which to explore the expansive literature on this (relatively) new numerical technique.

The style is refreshingly clear and direct. Some readers may not like the simple mathematical notion (for example notation to differentiate rank of tensors is dispensed with in favour of the rank being implied), however I myself found that the equations were quite clear in the context of the accompanying text.

More of a journey than a reference, the book is littered with the beginnings of many mini, and not so mini research projects.
 
SPAM and sph, a superior route to continuum solutions  Jan 15, 2007
This excellent monograph, prepared by Professor Hoover with the help of his wife Carol, contains all that a reader needs to understand, develop, and use smooth-particle techniques for computer simulations of continua. Applications to solid deformation and to fluid flow display a variety of useful techniques for avoiding the usual pitfalls with standard sph.
