The PSRC website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
Simulating physically realistic, complex dust behaviors is useful in interactive graphics applications, such as those used for education, entertainment, or training. Training in virtual environments is a major topic for research and applications, and generating dust behaviors in real time significantly increases the realism of the simulated training environment. We introduce a method for simulating the dust behaviors that a fast-traveling vehicle causes. Our method combines particle systems, rigid-body particle dynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), rendering, and visualization techniques. Our work integrates physics-based computing and graphical visualization for applications in simulated virtual environments.
