We present an open source, object oriented framework for Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics called PySPH. The framework is written in the high level, Python programming language and is designed to be user friendly, flexible and application agnostic. PySPH supports distributed memory computing using the message passing paradigm and (limited) shared memory like parallel processing on hybrid (CPU + GPU) machines using OpenCL. In this work, we discuss the abstractions for an SPH implementation and the resulting design choices that resulted in the development of PySPH.
