In this paper, the implementation of a 3D smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH) simulator is presented. The method can simulate multiple fluid phases and is capable of reproducing complex phase interface phenomena such as surface tension, contact angle and wettability. After a brief development, we present on simulation results from several industrially relevant examples including 3D multi-phase flows in granular media.
