Terrain Erosion

ScreenShot

A realtime terrain erosion & fluid simulation running on the CPU. The simulation is implemented in C++ on the CPU and parallelized using OpenMP. Rendering is done using OpenGL. We use the eulerian or grid-based approach to fluid simulation to implement the shallow water equations and hydraulic erosion on a height field terrain.

Based on the following papers:

  • Fast Hydraulic Erosion Simulation and Visualization on GPU [Mei et al., 2007]
  • Interactive terrain modeling using hydraulic erosion [St'ava et al., 2008]
  • Fast Hydraulic and Thermal Erosion on the GPU [Jákó et al, 2011]

Controls:

Keys Action
W/S move camera forward/backward
A/D move camera left/right
R/F move camera up/down
Q/E rotate camera left/right
T/G rotate camera up/down
O/P start/stop rain
K/L start/stop flood
arrow keys move flood position

Dependencies:

  • GLFW
  • GLEW
  • OpenGL 3.2
  • C++11
  • boost::filesystem
  • boost::system
  • OpenMP
  • TCLAP (redistributed)

Compile Instructions

QtCreator:
"TerrainFluid.pro" is a QtCreator project file.

Linux Console:
