Abstract: In this poster session, we introduce our new parallel and distributed Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics implementation, FleCSPH, which is based on the open-source framework FleCSI. This framework provides us the basic data structures and runtime required in our work. We intend to provide a parallel and distributed version of Binary, Quad, and Oct trees data structure, respectively for 1, 2 and 3 dimensions dedicated for SPH problems.

Also, we present various test problems in several dimensions that indicate the flexibility and the scalability of our toolkit. For application and tests we simulate classical physics test cases like Sod Shock Tube, Sedov Blast Wave or Fluid Flows. The aim of this work is to simulate binary compact object mergers such as white dwarfs and neutron stars that address many interesting astrophysical phenomena in the universe.
