Framework for real-time forest fire animation: Simulating fire spread using the GPU
MetadataShow full item record
In 2009 Odd Erik Gundersen and Jo Skjermo described a conceptual framework for animating physically based forest fires. This project expands on their ideas with a focus on how modern graphics hardware can be utilized to achieve real-time performance. A prototype demonstrating some of the concepts suggested for the framework have been implemented and tested, successfully achieving real-time frame rates on a simple animation of a burning tree.
