Abstract We describe the algorithms implemented in the first version of GRADSPH, a parallel, tree-based, smoothed particle hydrodynamics code for simulating self-gravitating astrophysical systems written in FORTRAN 90. The paper presents details on the implementation of the Smoothed Particle Hydro (SPH) description, where a gridless approach is used to model compressible gas dynamics. This is done in the conventional SPH way by means of ‘particles’ which sample fluid properties, exploiting interpolati...
