Dynamic Simulation of Splashing Fluids


In this paper we describe a method for modeling the dynamic behavior of splashing fluids. The model simulates the behavior of a fluid when objects impact or float on its surface. The forces generated by the objects create waves and splashes on the surface of the fluid. To demonstrate the realism and limitations of the model, images from a computer- generated animation are presented and compared with video frames of actual splashes occurring under similar Abstract: initial conditions.
