Hi everyone! :)

I am trying to do a shallow water simulation, with waves and etc.

However, I have searched the whole internet and I either find a model that it's either too simple or either too complicated.

This next model works is without waves, and given initial conditions of the old-water matrix, it produces a single wave until the water estabilizes and ends completelly flat. My problem is that to generate another wave i have to change the values of the matrix abruptly and that looks really bad and unrealistic, and waves dissapear...

for y := 1 to height - 1

for x := 1 to width - 1

new-water[y][x] = ((old-water[y-1][x] +

old-water[y+1][x] +

old-water[y][x-1] +

old-water[y][x+1]) / 2) -

new-water[y][x])

new-water[y][x] -= new-water[y][x] shr x

end

end

How can I make a continous moving water?

And is there anywhere I can find a more sophisticated model hat involves turbulences (that is waves with crests). (maybe a Navier-Stockes system simplified with numerical methods... :confused: )

Hope anyone can help me on this one...

Thanks so much in advance!
