Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics is a fast, parallel, modular and low-memory method originally developed for astrophysical applications in three dimensions. In recent years, it has been used for 3D biomedical applications as well. It has proved to be useful in the field of biomedical engineering mostly because the geometries used need to be often patient-specific and therefore complex. Complicated geometries are formed with high number of finite elements which subsequently requires the use of specialized numerical methods. Moreover, computational fluid dynamics in biomedical applications also deals with moving and deforming structures and therefore the use of fluid-structure interaction analyses is important. The utilization of smoothed-particle hydrodynamics in the fluid-structure interaction analysis is ideal to satisfy the need for fast computational method with the use of complicated geometries.
