### smoothed-particle hydrodynamics

**(SPH)**
(computational method for simulating fluid flows)

**Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics** (**SPH**) is a computational
method for modeling fluids (hydrodynamics) developed by
Lucy, Gingold, and Monaghan in 1977.
It represents fluids as dispersed particles with "smoothed"
characteristics, and allowing them to flow.

The GADGET-2 astrophysical N-body simulator
also includes SPH to model gas.

Variations on the concept are used to model the outcome
of impacts.
