The goal of this mini-symposium is to promote discussion and exchange of knowledge and experience on the fundamentals and applications of particle-based methods for solving a variety of multi-physics problems. Multi-physics applications involve multiple physical processes in the scope of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, etc. The focus will be on particle-based methods both as discretization concept and as physical particles, including, but not limited to, smoothed particle hydrodynamics method (SPH), moving particle semi-implicit method (MPS), material point method (MPM), and discrete element method (DEM). The coupling of these methods with conventional numerical techniques is also in the scope of this mini-symposium.
