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. Check out my newest app: Grantophone! More cool demos! Please enable JavaScript to view the <a href=" About This is my implementation of the Material Point Method. 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. Stiffness - How compressible the fluid is. Bulk viscosity - Kind of like damping. Gravity - How much the particles will accelerate downwards.

aM laboratory Bokeh Effect in Web Design: Showcase, Tutorials and Resources Today I would like to present the use of bokeh effect in web design. But what is Bokeh? In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light“. – Wikipedia. In this article you will find inspirational showcase of beautiful and very colorful websites with bokeh effect. Showcase of Bokeh Effect in Web Design Wonderful bokeh effect looks very impressive in web design projects. In this showcase you will find over 20 beautiful examples of bokeh effect in web design.

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. The first quantum machine[edit] Cooling to the ground state[edit] In order to demonstrate the quantum mechanical behaviour, the team first needed to cool the mechanical resonator until it was in its quantum ground state (the state with the lowest possible energy). Controlling the quantum state[edit] In quantum mechanics, vibrations are made up of elementary vibrations called phonons. Notes[edit] ^ a: The ground state energy of an oscillator is proportional to its frequency: see quantum harmonic oscillator References[edit] External links[edit]

Calorie Calculator - Daily Caloric Needs <div class="alert">Hey! You have JavaScript disabled on your browser. The calculator will not work. <a target="_blank" href=" how to enable JavaScript on your browser.</a></div> How Many Calories Should I Eat? One-size-fits-all calorie recommendations do not work. They must be customized to each individual. Flexible Dieting Flexible dieting is becoming quite popular because it is very personalized and very unrestrictive. No foods are off limits as long as they fit your daily macro amounts and people enjoy the freedom flexible dieting gives them while still experiencing results. It also incorporates technology like smart phones, tablets, and other devices to make tracking calories and macros a lot easier. To accurately determine your daily calorie amount above, enter your current weight, age, height, and gender into the calculator. The results will show how many calories you may eat in order to maintain or lose weight. Calories for Fat Loss Warning!
