Particles for fluids: SPH versus vortex methods

Andrea Colagrossi, Giorgio Graziani and Mario Pulvirenti

Vol. 2 (2014), No. 1, 45–70

We review the basic ideas underlying two popular particle methods for fluids: smoothed-particle hydrodynamics and the vortex method. We discuss convergence problems, numerical schemes, and examples of practical simulations.
