SPH modelling involves the CAD specification of die
geometry, the construction of FEM meshes using
comercial mesh generators and the conversion of this to
SPH input data.
The difficulty associated with
visualisation of complex 3D free surface flows using nonstructured particle data were also highlighted.
The two examples demonstrate the complex 3D flow
patterns in the die filling process. The complex free
surface behaviour include splashing and surface breakup
are handled naturally by SPH. This results from the
Lagrangian nature of SPH and the superior mass
conservation properties of this particle method.
