Abstract

Particle method such as Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and Moving Particle Semi-implicit method (MPS) can handle quite complicated physical problems involving dynamic changes of free surface and crack propagation, and it is wildly expanding its applications not only in the fluid dynamics but also in the solid mechanics. Beside of these advantages, particle methods are not so easy to treat boundary conditions, like pressure Neumann condition and slip or no-slip condition in fluid dynamics. This is one of the typical difficulties in mesh-less type method. In addition, particle simulation model may include an incompatible step-shaped boundary line, which is made by using a simple pre-processing of particle model. Although the simple and robust pre-processing is one of the advantage of particle simulation, the step-shaped boundary may generate un-realistic numerical solution across the real boundary line especially in the fluid dynamics. Recently, pressure Neumann condition in SPH is re-focused with fixed ghost boundary method using virtual makers. In this paper, the fixed ghost boundary method is modified to treat the incompatible step-shaped boundary particles by referring the real physical boundary line. The accuracy and efficiencies of proposed method are validated by comparison between a numerical solution and experimental results.
