Reduced Boundary Viscosity for Smoke

Alexis Angelidis
June 2019

We propose a method to reduce viscosity at the boundaries of incompressible flows. Our method allows artists to control the amount of boundary viscosity by mixing a new slip boundary solution with an existing no-slip solution. The cost of our method is an additional pre-computation and a post-computation that can ... more

Vorticle Fluid Simulation

Alexis Angelidis
February 2015

We present a Lagrangian method for simulating incompressible gases in 3 dimensions. Using the vorticity equation with Lagrangian particles, we create, modify and delete vortices of varying size in a manner that handles buoyancy, boundaries, viscosity and collision with deformable objects using monopoles. Our method scales linearly for parallel processing and provides user controls at varying ... more
