Abstract - Incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics method has been used to simulate the descent of a solid disk in quiescent medium under gravitational acceleration. Using a single domain approach, we have studied the effects of viscosity ratio and interpolation scheme. Comparison with available data in the literature shows quantitative agreement.
