4th DualSPHysics User Workshop

New DualSPHysics v4.2


4th DualSPHysics User Workshop


We are pleased to announce the 4th DualSPHysics Users Workshop, taking place at Instituto Superior TécnicoUniversity of Lisbon 22nd-24th October 2018.

The DualSPHysics Users Workshop brings together a growing community of users and developers of this open-source SPH code.

The aims are:

  • Provide an opportunity for the end-users to discuss with core developers;

  • Provide an opportunity for the DualSPHysics teams to present latest advances and plans for future development;

  • Enable users to discuss performance of the latest versions and features, suggest new areas for development and improvement;

  • Provide a hands-on practical session to help users;

  • Enable users to present their own work using DualSPHysics, to share experiences and provide feedback on best practices.

We encourage all delegates to submit a 1-page abstract if they wish to present their work. A book of abstracts for all presentations will be made available.


New DualSPHysics v4.2


We are pleased to announce the release of new packages of DualSPHysics (v4.2) will be release in May 2018 and include:

• Several bugs are solved
Bugs reported by users
Shifting correction

• Multiphase code: LiquidGas
Source code and examples.

• New capacity to simulate up to 65,000 floating or moving bodies 
Pre-processing and post-processing tools are adapted to this.
Compiling option for this functionality

• Wave generation and absorption
2nd Order Stokes: piston and flap
Passive absorption using sponge layers
Active absorption: AWAS for piston

• New post-processing tools
FlowTool.exe; to compute inflow, outflow… overtopping!
IsoSurface.exe; now also creates slices 

• Updated GUI
DesignSPHysics adapted to v4.2

• CUDA 9.1 

• Other changes
Improvements in the code documentation
Improved implementation of floating to facilitate coupling with other models
New functionalities in the XML of GenCase to create more complex cases
New output VTK file one thousand times less heavy to easily visualise huge cases
