Abstract:

This document is a manual for the use of the Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics Code SPHC. This code offers rapid hydrodynamic simulations with no large degradation in simulation accuracy. It has been successfully used to simulate implosions, explosions, shock tubes and to monitor aggregate masses under hydrodynamic conditions. In addition, SPHC can divide, create, and subtract particles in the simulations to optimize results without adversely affecting run conditions. The code is written in the C language and is relatively machine independent. It can be hosted on a variety of computers, ranging from supercomputers to IBM-AT class micro-computers. The SPHC manual has four sections 1 a Users Guide 2 a Programmers Guide 3 a Technical Guide and 4 a Function Directory. Keywords C Computer language C Computer code.
