MultiFluid will develop a multi-level theory and hybrid solution with tools to provide a coherent multi-level enhancement to refine fluid details and offer user-friendly controls in animation.

Within this framework, it will develop a multi-phase interaction and phase-transition model to consider complex physics beyond the state of the art, with an aim to create realistic images for computer animation and visual effects production.

MultiFluid is designed to resolve the mismatch in digital creation. It aims to advance knowledge in physically-based modelling and fluid dynamics with a distinctive unified theoretical framework to incorporate new mathematical understanding in particle-grid-based numerical simulation, which tackles computer animation production as a priority but also brings new knowledge into fluid simulation with a new numerical approach and tools.

This multidisciplinary research is ambitious and revolutionary to combine competencies from fluid mechanics and animation artists to benefit stakeholders directly and generate impact.
