Simulation of Two-Phase Flow with Sub-Scale Droplets and Bubble Effects

We present a new Eulerian-Lagrangian method for physics-based simulation of fluid flow, which includes automatic generation of sub-scale spray and bubbles. The Marker Level Set method is used to provide a simple geometric criterion for free marker generation. A filtering method, inspired from Weber number thresholding, further controls the free marker generation (in a physics-based […]

Real-Time Fluid Simulation Using Discrete Sine/Cosine Transforms

Recent advances in fluid simulations have yielded exceptionally realistic imagery. However, most algorithms have computational requirements that are prohibitive for real-time simulations. Using Fourier based solutions mitigates this issue, although due to wraparound, boundary conditions are not naturally available, leading to inconsistencies near the boundary. We show that slip boundary conditions can be imposed by […]

Implicit Contact Handling for Deformable Objects

We present an algorithm for robust and efficient contact handling of deformable objects. By being aware of the internal dynamics of the colliding objects, our algorithm provides smooth rolling and sliding, stable stacking, robust impact handling, and seamless coupling of heterogeneous objects, all in a unified manner. We achieve dynamicsawareness through a constrained dynamics formulation […]

Mixing Fluids and Granular Materials

Fluid animations in computer graphics show interactions with various kinds of objects. However, fluid flowing through a granular material such as sand is still not possible within current frameworks. In this paper, we present the simulation of fine granular materials interacting with fluids. We propose a unified Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics framework for the simulation of […]

Scalable Real-Time Animation of Rivers

Many recent games and applications target the interactive exploration of realistic large scale worlds. These worlds consist mostly of static terrain models, as the simulation of animated fluids in these virtual worlds is computation- ally expensive. Adding flowing fluids, such as rivers, to these virtual worlds would greatly enhance their realism, but causes specific issues: […]

Hydraulic Erosion Using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics

This paper presents a new technique for modification of 3D terrains by hydraulic erosion. It efficiently couples fluid simulation using a Lagrangian approach, namely the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method, and a physically-based erosion model adopted from an Eulerian approach. The eroded sediment is associated with the SPH particles and is advected both implicitly, due […]

Parallel Simulation of Inextensible Cloth

This paper presents an efficient simulation method for parallel cloth simulation. The presented method uses an impulse-based approach for the simulation. Cloth simulation has many application areas like computer animation, computer games or virtual reality. Simulation methods often make the assumption that cloth is an elastic material. In this way the simulation can be performed […]

A Geometric Deformation Model for Stable Cloth Simulation

We propose an adapted shape-matching approach for the efficient and robust simulation of clothing. A combination of two different cluster types is employed to account for high stretching and shearing, and low bending resistance. Due to the inherent handling of overshooting issues, the proposed shape-matching deformation model is robust. The proposed cluster types allow for […]

Seams and Bending in Cloth Simulation

Accurate modeling of bending behavior is one of the most important tasks in the field of cloth simulation. Bending stiffness is probably the most significant material parameter describing a given textile. Much work has been done in recent years to allow a fast and authentic reproduction of the effect of bending in cloth simulation systems. […]

Corotated Finite Elements Made Fast and Stable

Multigrid finite-element solvers using the corotational formulation of finite elements provide an attractive means for the simulation of deformable bodies exhibiting linear elastic response. The separation of rigid body motions from the total element motions using purely geometric methods or polar decomposition of the deformation gradient, however, can introduce instabilities for large element rotations and […]
