Realistic Fluid Animation is an inherent part of special effects in Film and Gaming Industry. These animations are created through the simulation of highly compute intensive fluid model. The computations involved in execution of fluid model emphasize the need of high performance parallel system to achieve the real time animation. This paper primarily devoted to the formalization of parallel algorithms for fluid animation employing Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model on Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). We have demonstrated a considerable execution speedup on CUDA as compare to CPU. The speedup is further improved by reducing complexity of SPH computations from O(N^2) to O(N).

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.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
