To close out 2017 with a bang, PEC is celebrating with a numerically simulated fireworks display developed using LS-DYNA. Most sources place the invention of firecrackers in China over 1,000 years ago, preceded according to legend by the accidental invention of gunpowder by a Chinese cook over 2,000 years ago. Our modern firework display is modeled using a mesh-free, smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) formulation and is  rendered using ParaView. Have a safe and happy New Year from all of us at PEC.
