This thesis aimed at the understanding and further development of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). The first part described the implementations of non-reflecting boundary conditions for elastic- waves in SPH. The second part contains a stability analysis of the semi-discrete SPH equations and a new method for stabilising basic SPH in tension.
