|Abstract||In this work, we focus on fluid modeling and animation via lattice methods for computer games. We consider two approaches in this area: a Lattice Gas Cellular Automata (LGCA) technique and the Lattice Boltzmann (LBM) Method. LGCAs are discrete models based on point particles that move on a lattice according to suitable and simple rules in order to mimic a fully molecular dynamics. The LBM method is based on the fundamental idea of constructing simplified kinetic models, which incorporates the essential physics of microscopic processes so that the macroscopic averaged properties satisfy macroscopic equations. In this article, we present two animating frameworks based on the above-mentioned lattice methods. Both frameworks are composed of two models: (a) a 3D fluid animation technique; and (b) a GPU surface flow animation over terrain models. In the first framework, item (a) is performed through a LGCA, while in the second one we applied the LBM. In this work we highlight the advantages of these approaches for computer game applications. In the experimental results, we emphasize the simplicity and power of the presented models when combined with efficient techniques for rendering, and compare them in terms of efficiency.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
