Abstract

This paper presents a new Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) computational framework for explicit fast solid dynamics. The proposed methodology explores the use of the Streamline Upwind Petrov–Galerkin (SUPG) stabilisation methodology as an alternative to the Jameson–Schmidt–Turkel (JST) stabilisation recently presented by the authors in Lee et al. (2016) in the context of a conservation law formulation of fast solid dynamics. The work introduced in this paper puts forward three advantageous features over the recent JST-SPH framework. First, the variationally consistent nature of the SUPG stabilisation allows for the introduction of a locally preserving angular momentum procedure which can be solved in a monolithic manner in conjunction with the rest of the system equations. This differs from the JST-SPH framework, where an a posteriori projection procedure was required to ensure global angular momentum preservation. Second, evaluation of expensive harmonic and bi-harmonic operators, necessary for the JST stabilisation, is circumvented in the new SUPG-SPH framework. Third, the SUPG-SPH framework is more accurate (for the same number of degrees of freedom) than its JST-SPH counterpart and its accuracy is comparable to that of the robust (but computationally more demanding) Petrov–Galerkin Finite Element Method (PG-FEM) technique explored by the authors in Lee et al. (2014), Gil et al. (2014,2016), Bonet et al. (2015), as shown in the numerical examples included. A series of numerical examples are analysed in order to benchmark and assess the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. The resulting SUPG-SPH framework is therefore accurate, robust and computationally efficient, three key desired features that will allow the authors in forthcoming publications to explore its applicability in large scale simulations.
