This paper concerns the application of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method for sewer hydraulics with a focus on free-surface flows and sediment flushing. SPH is the most popular mesh-free method and has been widely used in the field of fluid mechanics. Here, the previous studies in the last few years are summarized, which have investigated the application of the relatively new model for the simulation of solid transport, free-surface and multiphase flows.
