OmniAD: Data-Driven Omni-Directional Aerodynamics

Introducing OmniAD, a novel data-driven pipeline to model and acquire the aerodynamics of three-dimensional rigid objects simply by capturing their falling motion using a single camera. OmniAD enables realistic real-time simulation of rigid bodies and interactively designed three-dimensional kites that actually fly.

Robust Simulation of Sparse-Sampling Thin Features in SPH-Based Free Surface Flows

This paper proposes a new formula for calculation of surface forces in SPH-based single-phase flows and develops correction algorithms to avoid the tensile numerical-stability issue. This allows the system to effectively preserve thin features in small-scale liquid animations using standard single-phase SPH approaches.

An Implicit Viscosity Formulation for SPH Fluids

In this novel viscosity formulation for SPH fluids, the velocity field is reconstructed from a target gradient that encodes the desired viscosity and preserves the divergence. The formulation can easily be incorporated into complex scenarios with two-way coupled solids and multiple fluid phases with different densities and viscosities.
