  author={Nils Th{\"u}rey and Ulrich R{\"u}de and Carolin K{\"o}rner},
In this paper we present our algorithm for animating fluids with a free surface. It is based on the Lattice-Boltzmann Method, instead of a direct discretization of the Navier-Stokes equations. This allows a relatively simple treatment of the free surface boundary conditions at high computational efficiency, without sacrificing the underlying physics. We give a detailed description of our algorithm, focussing on details that are required to achieve a good visual appearance. Furthermore we… CONTINUE READING
