Abstract (englisch):

The study concerns the application of the smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method within computational fluid dynamics. In the present study, a tank discharge with a falling head is investigated. Water is modelledas a viscous fluid with weak compressibility. An enhanced treatment of the solid boundaries is used within the two-dimensional SPH scheme. The boundaries are represented by a special set of SPH particles that differ from the ones representing the fluid bybeing immovable, preventing the fluid from leaving the container. Particles with different colors are used to illustrate the sequence of the empting the tankas well as the velocity vectors to show stream lines. A code is developed using C++ to solve all equations explicitly by use of a Verlet algorithm. Results are compared to an analytical solution, and a good agreement is achieved.
