Cartesian Grid Fluid Simulation With Irregular Boundary Voxels

The simulation grid can often be seen in fluid simulations. Using irregular boundary voxels in fluid simulation and advection, we are able to capture more detail than we can with traditional methods.

Fluid Simulation Via Disjoint Translating Grids

An adaptive fluid-simulation technique that splits the computation domain into multiple moving grids. Using this technique, we are able to simulate fluids over large spatial domains.

A Semi-Lagrangian Contouring Method for Fluid Simulation

A semi-Lagrangian surface tracking method for use with fluid simulations. This method maintains an explicit polygonal mesh, which defines the surface, and a supplemental octree data structure.
