Abstract: To maintain incompressibility in SPH fluid simulations is important for visual plausibility. However, it remains an outstanding challenge to enforce incompressibility in such recent multiple-fluid simulators as the mixture-model SPH framework. To tackle this problem, we propose a novel incompressible SPH solver, where the compressibility of fluid is directly measured by the deformation gradient. By disconnecting the incompressibility of fluid from the conditions of constant density and divergence-free velocity, the new incompressible SPH solver is applicable to both single- and multiple-fluid simulations. The proposed algorithm can be readily integrated into existing incompressible SPH frameworks developed for single-fluid, and is fully parallelizable on GPU. Applied to multiple-fluid simulations, the new incompressible SPH scheme significantly improves the visual effects of the mixture-model simulation, and it also allows exploitation for artistic controlling.
