The smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method, one of meshfree methods, is developed to simulate the interaction between multi-droplets and substrate with solidification. However, the SPH method for this complicated problem needs a large amount of computing time, since it has to use a large number of the SPH particles to represent multidrops and substrate. All-pair search and linked list algorithms are popular in the neighbor search, which is the most time consuming part of the SPH calculation. Both algorithms are tested in this paper. For the solidification process, since the volume of the melt is decreased continuously, a new method is proposed to speed up the SPH calculation. The new treatment is used to handle the particles near the free surface and near the solidification interface Multi-droplets impinging on a smooth substrate in 2D and 3D are simulated to demonstrate the capability of current numerical method on simulating the spreading and solidification of multi-droplets.
