Download the files below to install and implement the SPHC package.

PLOTTER - is NOT provided.

Easiest solution is to run Thor on a Windows partition.

I will share suggestions for UNIX display options as they come to my attention.

 For Windows, these files are all that you need to run SPHC (Open Source). Includes SPHC.exe - main code, and SPHCInt.exe - the GUI run interface (see Users' Manual).

Also be sure to get Thor.exe from the Thor plotter page.

  von Karman Vortex Street Test case, Mach 1/2, Re = 530      Version: 1r

  Stellingwerf     November 2015
 This is a 2D model of atmospheric flow around a cylinder. Flow speed is 530 ft/s (Mach 1/2, Re=300). A "street" of vortices should develop.

Illustrates wind tunnel setup, variable ratio gridding, and transition to turbulence. This is validation test for the effective viscosity of the code for subsonic and supersonic flow. Matches experiments in both limits.

Caution - runs about 15 hours. For a quicker test, reduce the particle number...or, increase the Mach number (reset variable Machnum). Get the eddy street for speeds up to Machnum = 2 (Reynolds number of about 1000). Above Mach 2, the flow becomes turbulent.
  "Dart" Wind Tunnel Test Case - 72 Mb      Version: 1os

  Stellingwerf     June 2014
 This is the open source version of a supersonic dart in a wind tunnel. Ambient conditions are STP, velocity is approximately Mach 18.

Some "retries" to adjust the timestep are normal. Note lower Mach number shock at rear, due to hotter conditions post-shock.

Should run about 2 hours.

Windows GUI
  User interface routine for Windows installations

  Stellingwerf     May 2014
 This is a windows executable that should run on XP, Win 7, Win 8. Pops up a small control window that allows specification of the code folder, data folder, plotter location, and run parameters.
