**Real-time fluid physics library**The goal was to create a physics library, specialized on water fluid physics, for real-time applications.**Why?**• Water motion is appealing and it should be possible to use it more in games for enhanced experience. • A physics-based system is needed to enable interaction between solid objects and fluid.**What is it?**• Real-time • 3D motion integrator • Solid object/fluid interactor (currently support for liquid)**But it's not:**• Not a simulator • Not a graphics renderer**Capabilities**• Colliding contacts • Volume determination • Buoyancy forces • Drag forces**How is it done?**• Mesh/mesh collision detection • Uses OPCODE library • Collision resolving • Time step bisection (to specified resolution) • Computes closest contacts before • Best effort contacts • Impulse**How is it done?**• Buoyancy/drag forces • Archimedes’ principle: F = ρ * V * g • Volume approximation • Numerical integration • Drag force: F = -ρ * v o v * A * c / 2 * v / |v| • Area approximation • Liquid dynamics • Wave equation: • ∂2h / ∂t2 = v2 * (∂2h / ∂x2 + ∂2h / ∂z2) • Mass conservation: ∂m / ∂t = 0**Extendable?**• Mesh loaders • Integrators • Fluid kernels
