The program will include a day of training, delegate presentation sessions and lectures from DualSPHysics developers on the latest major developments and features of the code.

Day 1 (25/10/2022) will include two practical sessions:

  • For developers about how to modify the source code in DualSPHysics (other kernel functions, equation of state or saving new array in the output files).
  • For users where selected tests will be built and executed using the latest version of Graphical User Interface DesignSPHysics.

Day 2 (26/10/2022) and day 3 (27/10/2022) will be devoted to sessions for presentations by participants and lectures by developers on the main developments and applications of the code:

  • How to manage and contribute to the project using public repository
  • New options during pre-processing
  • New on BCs: mDBC for floating objects
  • Updates about coupling with Chrono and MoorDyn
  • Fluid-structure interaction model for free-surface flows and flexible structures

Invited Keynote Lectures

Professor Dan Negrut (University of Winsconsin-Madison) will deliver a Keynote on "Support in Chrono for simulating automation, robots, and autonomous vehicles", while Professor Abbas Khayyer (Kyoto University) will deliver a Keynote on "SPH for new generation fluid-structure interaction solvers and reliable design of advanced coastal/offshore structures".

In addition, a beta version of the code ( will be released for workshop participants only, including all major new features, so that they can test the new version some months before official public release.
