Abstract [en]

In this paper we look at earlier research into particle systems and particularly on how they have been used for creating strands. We use this knowledge to implement our own particle system to simulate strands, in order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of particle systems better. What we find is that particle systems give highly detailed images but that they are very costly to compute when the number of particles increase. As such, when implementing particle systems you should create different level of details of the particle system which limits the number of particles depending on the distance from the viewer as well as try to use approximative fast algorithms to compute the particles behaviours.

Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport tittar vii på tidigare forskning inom partikel system och speciellt på hur dessa har använts för att skapa fibrer. Vi använder denna kunskap för att implementera vår eget partikel system för att simulera fibrer, detta får att få en bättre förståelse för styrkor och svagheter hos partikel system bättre. Vi finner att partikel system kan ge väldigt detaljerade bilder men att de är väldigt kostsamma att beräkna när antalet partiklar ökar. Därför, när man implementerar partikel system borde man skapa olika detalj nivåer av partikel systemet som begränsar antalet partiklar beroende på avståndet till betraktaren och dessutom försöka använda approximativa snabba algoritmer för att beräkna partikel beteende.
