In this paper, a graphics processing unit-accelerated smoothed particle hydrodynamics solver is presented to simulate the three-dimensional explosions in soils and their damage to aluminium structures. To achieve this objective, a number of equations of state and constitutive models required to close the governing equations are incorporated into the proposed smoothed particle hydrodynamics framework, including the Jones-Wilkins Lee equation of state for explosive materials, the Gruneisen equation of state for metals, the elastic-perfectly plastic constitutive model for metals, and the elastoplastic and elastoviscoplastic constitutive models for soils. The proposed smoothed particle hydrodynamics methodology was implemented using the Compute Unified Device Architecture programming interface on an NVIDIA graphics processing unit in order to improve the computational efficiency. The various components of the proposed methodology were validated using four test cases, namely, a C4 detonation and an aluminium bar expanded by denotation to validate the modelling of explosion, a cylindrical Taylor bar impact test case to validate the modelling of large deformation in metals, a sand collapse test for the modelling of soils. Following the validation, the proposed method was used to simulate the detonation of an explosive material (C4) in soil and the concomitant deformation of an aluminium plate resulting from this explosion. The predicted results of this simulation are shown to be in good conformance with available experimental data. Finally, it is shown that the proposed graphics processing unit-accelerated SPH solver is able to model interaction problems involving millions of particles in a reasonable time.
