Abstract This thesis presents a high performance method for animating and rendering passively advected fluids such as smoke, steam and fire, for real-time applications. The solution consists of; a fluid advection method which is not necessarily physically correct, but presents results which could be perceived as physically plausible, a method for creating real-time adaptive boundaries for the fluids, and a collection of different rendering techniques depending on the fluid type. Through performance comparison with an existing technique and quality evaluations against offline renders and real video footage, this technique demonstrates that plausible animation and rendering of passively advected fluids can be created at acceptable performance rates.
