Interactive Research Examples
Processing implementation of the Boundary Data Immersion Method (BDIM) with dye injection for visualization. Left click and drag the red ball through the flow. Right click to reset the simulation and toggle a uniform free stream. Double click anywhere to add or remove a ball. BDIM captures complex solid/fluid interactions such as the alternating vortex wake pattern without boundary fitted grids.
In order to acheive real-time calculation speed, the simulation is first-order and single precision. As such this tool is strictly for illustrative and educational purposes.
Processing implementation of the conservative Volume Of Fluid (cVOF) method for two fluids with a density ratio of 0.9 such as oil and water. Move the mouse to rotate the tank. The conservative method ensures the tank remains half full (or half empty) even whem modeling breaking waves, spray, and bubbles.
