On this page, I've finally decided to collect together an assortment of useful resources for understanding, developing and running Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics codes.

An introduction to Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics is a pedagogical review and introduction to Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics I have written for J. Comp. Phys. It is based on some lectures I gave at the ASTROSIM summer school in Torun, Poland, and coincides with the release of the NDSPMHD code.

The NDSPMHD code

Associated with the publication of "Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics" in J. Comp. Phys., I have made my "development" SPH code, NDSPMHD, public.

SPLASH

SPLASH is a publicly available visualisation tool for SPH I have developed over a number of years, and can be used to read, convert and visualise ndspmhd dump files.
