Liquid simulation on lattice-based tetrahedral meshes

Nuttapong Chentanez
2007 ACM SIGGRAPH 2007 computer animation festival on - SIGGRAPH '07  
Although the mesh is warped to conform to the liquid boundary, it has a mathematical guarantee on tetrahedron quality, and is generated very rapidly.  ...  Examples demonstrate that the method captures complex liquid motions and fine details on the free surfaces without suffering from excessive volume loss or artificial damping.  ...  Vertices of the background grid that are too close to the liquid surface are warped so that they lie on the surface. New vertices are added where edges of the background grid cut the surface.  ...

For the impact velocity of 1.0 m/s, the effect of the eccentric distance on dynamic characteristics is analysed, the corresponding eccentric distances are 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0, respectively.  ...  The break-up during rebound mainly depends on the local airflow and pressure difference.  ...  Then, the spreading factor decreases sharply due to the right-slip and up-warp of the liquid film. Part of the liquid film that up-warps contacts the tube again and the spreading factor increases.  ...
