Efficient Simulation of Large Bodies of Water by Coupling Two and Three Dimensional Techniques

Geoffrey Irving, Eran Guendelman, Frank Losasso, Ronald Fedkiw
January 2006

We present a new method for the efficient simulation of large bodies of water, especially effective when three-dimensional surface effects are important. Similar to a traditional two-dimensional height field approach, most of the water volume is represented by tall cells which are assumed to have linear pressure profiles. In order to avoid the limitations typically ... more
