In recent years, many approaches for real-time simulation of physical phenomena using particles have been proposed. Many of these use 3D grids for representing spatial distributions and employ a collision detection technique where particles must be sorted with respect to the cells they occupy. In this paper we propose several techniques that make it possible to explore spatio-temporal coherence in order to reduce the work needed to produce a correct ordering and thus accelerate the collision detection phase of the simulation. Sequential and GPU-based implementations are discussed, and experimental results are presented. Although devised with particle-based simulations in mind, the proposed techniques have a broader scope, requiring only some means of establishing subsequences of the input which did not change from one frame to the next.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
