In this paper, we present a method for simulating the interaction of fluids with deformable solids. The method is designed for the use in interactive systems such as virtual surgery simulators where the real-time interplay of liquids and surrounding tissue is important. In computer graphics, a variety of techniques have been proposed to model liquids and… (More)
Bubbles and foam are important fluid phenomena on scales that we encounter in our lives every day. While different techniques to handle these effects were developed in the past years, they require a full 3D fluid solver with free surfaces and surface tension. We present a shallow water based particle model that is coupled with a smoothed particle… (More)
In this paper, we propose an interactive method based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) to simulate blood as a fluid with free surfaces. While SPH was originally designed to simulate astronomical objects, we gear the method towards fluid simulation by deriving the force density fields directly from the Navier-Stokes equation and by adding a term to… (More)
We present a simple yet powerful approach for the generation and rendering of surfaces defined by the boundary of a three-dimensional point cloud. First, a depth map plus internal and external silhouettes of the surface are generated in screen space. These are used to construct a 2D screen space triangle mesh with a new technique that is derived from… (More)
We present a new method for enhancing shallow water simulations by the effect of overturning waves. While full 3D fluid simulations can capture the process of wave breaking, this is beyond the capabilities of a pure height field model. 3D simulations, however, are still too expensive for real-time applications, especially when large bodies of water need to… (More)
In this paper, we summarize our one-level single player game Carplication, a "study information racer" which we produced to let prospective students, as well as third parties, <i>testplay</i> and experience our newly established three-year Game Design B.A. program in an enjoyable, content appropriate rhetorical form.
