Realistic Fluid Flow Simulations for Computer Graphics

Over the last few years, there has been stunning progress in high-performance rendering of fluid flow, both gas and liquid, in computer graphics, with results visually comparable to those from full-blown computational fluid dynamics being generated in near-real-time. This video surveys recent work, with examples of the new techniques and their results.
