This book focuses on the SPAM, smooth particle applied mechanics, which is a computational approach to model nonequilibrium flows of continuum mechanics. It includes ten chapters which describe: SPAM methods, computer programming, statement of initial and boundary conditions, convergence and stability of the algorithms. Some sample applications to solve the problems of solid body, conclusions and literature survey are presented in the summary.
