MPM Liquid Demo

MPM Liquid Demo
Check out my blog! E-mail: Fluid Instructions: You can drag the fluid around with your mouse and adjust the sliders at the top to change the properties of the fluid in real-time. Please check out this video if you're having trouble figuring out what the sliders do. It requires Java to run. Check out my newest app: Grantophone! More cool demos!

For interpolation, I use the quadratic B-spline presented here: Analysis and Reduction of Quadrature Errors in the Material Point Method. Instead of integrating the density over time (which is what most of the MPM papers do), I do a density summation every frame. Material Parameters Some of these parameters are hard to explain in one or two sentences (and a couple I made up) so I'll also link you to their corresponding Wikipedia pages. Density - Target density for the particles. ©2011 Grant Kot

Tequila Lime Steak Fajitas — Our Life In The Kitchen What to do with a London broil? I almost never buy a London broil because no matter how pretty they might look, especially when they’re on sale, I just can’t seem to get the hang of preparing it any way that isn’t just too tough. This still wasn’t exactly filet mignon, but the recipe, inspired by my son Chris, who is a Grill Man Extraordinaire, turned out to be quite tasty. The assortment of fixings here is what we like.

Quantum machine Photograph of the quantum machine developed by O'Connell. The mechanical resonator is located to the lower left of the coupling capacitor (small white square). The qubit is connected to upper right of the coupling capacitor. Key Chords Key Chords app generates guitar chord progressions automatically. Use it free online, or get the app for Mac, Windows or iOS (iPad) - Click on a chord to preview how it sounds. - Drag and drop to arrange the chord progression - Tweak the settings to control the playback speed Or role the dice and Key Chords will automatically generate a nice sounding progression. Select a Key: Select a key and choose a the major or minor scale.

Fuck Yeah Fluid Dynamics Reader isotropicposts writes: Hi, I’m taking a fluids class and I’m not sure I understand the whole lagrangian-eulerian measurements of velocity and acceleration. Could you explain this? This is a really great question because the Eulerian versus Lagrangian distinction is not obvious when you first learn about it. Dilapidated 18th Century Church Transformed Into a Private Home Adaptive reuse projects generally call to mind industrial warehouses and factories turned into trendy studios, or shabby-chic restaurants and bars, but the transformation of the St. Nicholas Church in Kyloe, Northumberland, England has taken this concept of renewal and grounded it much closer to home. The church was purchased not too long ago by Sally Onions and Ian Bottomley, who went the unconventional route when scouting for their newest digs. Far from a Norman Foster style box, or even a classic and quaint Victorian house, the duo instead opted to transform an 18th century basilica into the sanctuary they now call “home.”

Universe's Most Massive Black Holes Got Huge Early The first rapid growth spurt of the universe's most massive black holes occurred much earlier than astronomers previously thought, and are still growing fast, a new study finds. A team of astronomers from Tel Aviv University in Israel determined that the first period of fast growth of the most massive black holes occurred when the universe was only about 1.2 billion years old ? not 2 to 4 billion years old, as had been thought. Astronomers estimate the universe is about 13.7 billion years old. In the study, astronomers also determined that the universe's oldest and most massive black holes are also growing at a very fast rate. Chicken Gyro The word gyro actually refers to the way the meat is cooked on the vertical rotisserie and sliced into thin strips. In most places in the US however, it refers to the pita rollup the meat is served to you on, and the other fillings inside. This sandwich can't traditionally be called a gyro because it is made with chicken, but I just love how the mild flavor of the chicken contrasts with the sharpness of the cheese and olives. We decided to make these when Mandi was craving olives and feta, but didn't know what she wanted them with. We had just made naan and loved it and wanted to make it again, and that's when I realized the naan is very similar to the Greek flatbread the gyro is served on. I loved the way these came out and the taste instantly reminded me of my first taste of a gyro not too long ago.

Don’t cross the LHC stream! There are a lot of questions in science that seem simple, but in fact lead to profound concepts. Why is the sky dark at night? Why does gravity pull me down? Education Resource Organization: Adult Giftedness Our thanks to Myra Kitson, Virtual Assistant of Elyse Killoran, for sending us this article to post on Metagifted.Org. SIGNS OF GIFTEDNESS IN ADULTHOODby Elyse Killoran The vast majority of adults who were labeled *gifted* in childhood are unaware that their advanced development would continue to have an impact throughout their lives. Contrary to popular belief, giftedness is not characterized by high intelligence alone. Rather, gifted individuals experience early & exceptional psychological, spiritual, and intellectual development.
