Pattern Guided Smoke Animation with Lagrangian Coherent Structure

Zhi Yuan, Fan Chen, Ye Zhao Fluid animation practitioners face great challenges from the complexity of flow dynamics and the high cost of numerical simulation. A major hindrance is the uncertainty of fluid behavior after simulation resolution increases and extra turbulent effects are added. In this paper, we propose to regulate fluid animations with predesigned […]

VolCCD: Fast Continuous Collision Culling Between Deforming Volume Meshes

Min Tang, Dinesh Manocha, Sung-Eui Yoon, Peng Du, Jae-Pil Heo, Ruofeng Tong We present a novel culling algorithm to perform fast and robust continuous collision detection between deforming volume meshes. This includes a continuous separating axis test that can conservatively check whether two volume meshes overlap during a given time interval. Moreover, we present efficient […]
