In this study a Modified Compressible Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (MCSPH) deformations of solids. As a matter of fact, algorithm of the method is based on an approach which descritizes the momentum equation into three parts and solves each part separately and calculates their effects on the velocity field and displacement of particles. The most exclusive feature of the method is exactly removing artificial viscosity of the formulations and representing good compatibility with other

Two types of problems involving elastic-plastic deformations and shock waves are presented here to demonstrate the capability of MCSPH in simulation of such problems and its ability to capture shock. The problems that are proposed here are low and high velocity impacts between aluminum projectiles and semi infinite aluminum beams. Elastic-perfectly plastic model is chosen for constitutive model of the aluminum and the results of simulations are compared with other reasonable studies in these cases. Astrophysical problems [1, 2, 3], free surface [7] and fracture of solids [8] .
