    Multifluid finite volume Navier-Stokes solutions for realistic fluid animation

Session/Category Title:   Simulation for Animation



    A multifluid, incompressible, variable-density, finite volume solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for generation of realistic fluid animation. A high-resolution tracking algorithm is used to capture the complex topology of interfaces, and results are rendered using blobs.
