Question

Asked 4th Oct, 2019

There are some Computational fluid dynamic numerical simulations available like John Hopkins CFD numerical simulations database is available to use. Is that can be used for Astrophysics purposes?

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)

Two kind of CFD methods are more popular in Computational Astrophysics, compared to Mechanical/ Chemical/Civil engineering CFD, and there are solid reasons for that:

1) **Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics** (SPH) method. It is developed in first place for astrophysics and due to its Lagrangian nature it can tackle questions of astrophysics very nice.

2) **Spectral Methods** (I do not mean spectral FEM, I mean methods such as Chebyshev polynomials spectral method): Those methods are of very high order and they are computationally effective and suitable for "large" domains of astrophysics, on one hand; On the other hand, in astrophysics we are not dealing with odd and dynamic geometries of the domain and this fact eliminates one of the main limitation of spectral methods.

Hope it helps,

Actually, the equations are not exactly the same, you need to start from the relativistic fluid dynamics topics, as reported in the textbook Landau Lifshitz, FluidMechanics, -3ed.
