Free-Surface Conditions in the Realistic Animation of Liquids, January 30, 2002 William F. Gates, 13 pages

The realistic animation of liquids based on the dynamic simulation of free-surface flow requires appropriate conditions on the liquid-gas interface. These conditions can be painstaking to implement and are in general not unique. We present the conditions we use in our implementation of a fluid animation system and discuss our rationale behind them.
