Module scheme

Abstract class to define the API for an SPH scheme. The idea is that one can define a scheme and thereafter one simply instantiates a suitable scheme, gives it a bunch of particles and runs the application.

class pysph.sph.scheme.ADKEScheme(fluids, solids, dim, gamma=1.4, alpha=1.0, beta=2.0, k=1.0, eps=0.0, g1=0, g2=0, has_ghosts=False)[source]

configure_solver(kernel=None, integrator_cls=None, extra_steppers=None, **kw)[source]

class pysph.sph.scheme.AdamiHuAdamsScheme(fluids, solids, dim, rho0, c0, nu, h0, gx=0.0, gy=0.0, gz=0.0, p0=0.0, gamma=7.0, tdamp=0.0, alpha=0.0)[source]

Bases: pysph.sph.scheme.TVFScheme

This is a scheme similiar to that in the paper:

Adami, S., Hu, X., Adams, N. A generalized wall boundary condition for smoothed particle hydrodynamics. Journal of Computational Physics 2012;231(21):7057-7075.

The major difference is in how the equations are integrated. The paper has a different scheme that does not quite fit in with how things are done in PySPH readily so we simply use the WCSPHStep which works well.
