Monash uses SPH to model wear mechanisms

Alban de Vaucorbeil, a mineAlloy researcher from Monash University, has delivered a talk at IFM. In his presentation, Alban explained the results he obtained using a mesh-less method called Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) to simulate the wear response of materials. Using this technique, he investigated the change in wear resistance and wear mechanism as a function of different plastic parameters of steels.
