Fluid Control Using the Adjoint Method

Antoine McNamara, Adrien Treuille, Zoran Popovic, Jos Stam

ACM Transactions on Graphics (SIGGRAPH Proceedings)
2004

Abstract

We describe a novelmethod for controlling physics-based fluid simulations through gradient-based nonlinear optimization. Using a technique known as the adjoint method, derivatives can be computed efficiently, even for large 3D simulations with millions of control parameters. In addition, we introduce the first method for the full control of free-surface liquids. We show how to compute adjoint derivatives through each step of the simulation, including the fast marching algorithm, and describe a new set of control parameters specifically designed for liquids.
