Simulating Liquids and Solid-Liquid Interaction with Lagrangian Meshes

Pascal Clausen, Martin Wicke, Jonathan Shewchuk, James O’Brien This paper describes a Lagrangian finite element method that simulates the behavior of liquids and solids in a unified framework. Local mesh improvement operations maintain a high-quality tetrahedral discretization even as the mesh is advected by fluid flow. We conserve volume and momentum, locally and globally, by […]
