Modeling human intuitions about liquid flow with particle-based simulation

5 Sep 2018Christopher J. BatesIlker YildirimJoshua B. TenenbaumPeter Battaglia

Humans can easily describe, imagine, and, crucially, predict a wide variety of behaviors of liquids--splashing, squirting, gushing, sloshing, soaking, dripping, draining, trickling, pooling, and pouring--despite tremendous variability in their material and dynamical properties. Here we propose and test a computational model of how people perceive and predict these liquid dynamics, based on coarse approximate simulations of fluids as collections of interacting particles...
