Abstract

This contribution is concerned with a novel, purely methodological strategy enabling to automatically adjust the local spatial resolution in Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). It is built upon the fact that the accuracy of the SPH interpolation is related to zeroth- and first-order moments. Ensuing from this knowledge, a suitable measure of the SPH spatial discretization error has been derived. Using this measure as an adaptivity criterion allows to dynamically adjust the local resolution in such a way that a uniform distribution of the spatial discretization error over the model domain is achieved. This is demonstrated in the present paper. To that end, the theoretical foundation of the proposed adaptivity criterion is discussed first. After that, its applicability to both SPH fluid and solid simulations is thoroughly examined
