1) hamvâr (#); 2) hamvâr kardan (#)
Fr.: 1) lisse; 2) lisser
1) Of a curve, free from bumps or abrupt irregularities.
O.E. smoð "free from roughness, not harsh," of unknown origin.
Hamvâr "level, equal, an even place or thing," from ham- "same, equally, even; together, with" (Mid.Pers. ham-, like L. com- and Gk. syn- with neither of which it is cognate. O.Pers./Av. ham-, Skt. sam-; also O.Pers./Av. hama- "one and the same," Skt. sama-, Gk. homos-; originally identical with PIE numeral *sam- "one," from *som-. The Av. ham- appears in various forms: han- (before gutturals, palatals, dentals) and also hem-, hen-) + -vâr similarity suffix.
Fr.: courbe lisse
1) A curve which is free from abrupt fluctuations.
Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)
hidrotavânik-e zarrehâ-ye hamvâridé
Fr.: hydrodynamique des particules lissées
A numerical method for modeling → compressible hydrodynamic flows, which uses particles to simulate a continuous fluid flow. Because the system of hydrodynamical basic equations can be analytically solved only for few exceptional cases, the SPH method provides a numerical algorithm to solve systems of coupled → partial differential equations for continuous field quantities. The main advantage of the method is that it does not require a computational grid to calculate spatial → derivatives and that it is a Lagrangian method, which automatically focuses attention on fluid elements. The equations of motion and continuity are expressed in terms of ordinary differential equations where the body forces become classical forces between particles. This method was first independently developed by Lucy (1977, AJ 82, 1013) and Gingold & Monaghan (1977, MNRAS 181, 375).
The mathematical process that makes a curve smooth.
Verbal noun of → smooth.
Fr.: circuit atténuateur
A low-pass filter designed to reduce the amplitude of a ripple while freely passing the direct current obtained from a rectifier or direct-current generator. Also known as smoothing filter.
