A custom MPM solver created in Houdini using mostly VEX and gas microsolver nodes. The ten step process presented in 'A material point method for snow simulation' is implemented. A tool to create custom snow scenes in Houdini using the solver is also provided.
Thesis Simulating Snow with the Material Point Method
Abstract This thesis discusses the research and development steps for the simulation of snow with the Material Point Method (MPM). In order to gain an understanding in the technique and mathematics the MPM was researched in detail.
