Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics with a total Lagrangian formulation are, in general, more robust than nite elements for large distortion problems. Nevertheless, updating the reference con¯guration
may still be necessary in some problems involving extremely large distortions. However, as discussed here a standard updated formulation suffers the presence of zero energy modes that are activated
and may spoil completely the solution. It is important to note that, unlike an Eulerian formulation,the updated Lagrangian does not present tension instability but only zero energy modes. Here an stabilization technique is incorporated to the updated formulation to obtain an improved method
without mechanisms and capable to solve problems with extremely large distortions.
