In this second of a three-paper sequence, we developed a standard work using the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic (SPH) approach in LS-DYNA and compared the results against those the Lagrangian model and available experimental results. First, the SPH model was validated against a one-dimensional beam centered impact’s analytical solution and the results are within 3% error. Bird-strike events were divided into three separate problems: frontal impact on rigid flat plate, 0 and 30 deg impact on deformable tapered plate. The bird model was modeled as a cylindrical fluid. We successfully identified the most influencing parameters when using SPH in LS-DYNA. The case for 0 deg tapered plate impact shows little bird-plate interaction because the bird is sliced in two parts and the results are within 5% difference from the test data available in the literature, which is an improvement over the Lagrangian model. Conclusion: The developed SPH approach is suitable for bird-strike events within 10% error.
