We propose here a scientific project in phenomenology of Heavy Ion Collisions, with applications of hydrodynamic models to test and study known experimental observables and search and propose new observables. Within this context, we propose the development of a new Monte Carlo simulation code, to study hydrodynamical evolution in Heavy Ion Collisions at LHC energies. With this work, we hope to present this new tool that would allow comparison to the new results being presented by the LHC experiments. This code will be developed in C++ within the framework of ROOT, which is widely used by the high energy physics community. The hydrodynamical simulation will be based on the SPH method, the same as used in the already known and well tested SPheRIO code. The novelty of what is being proposed here it to attempt the inclusion of new physical phenomena such as viscosity and control of the collision initial conditions. This project will be developed within the "FAPESP projeto temático-Física Nuclear de Altas Energias nos aceleradores RHIC e LHC" and includes the collaboration of the other members of this temático and theoreticians specialized in hydrodynamics, from USP and UFRJ.
