RealFlow: Simple "Pouring" Exercise
Added on: Mon Jul 03 2000
Page: 1 

Click the Reset button and click BUZZ again. Let the simulation run for a while. The
cup should slowly fill up with particles. Let the simulation run for a while so the particles can settle. I let my "settling" go for about 30 minutes but that was slightly over kill. So go walk the dog or chat on IRC. :)

Now that your particles have settled you get to run your simulation. To run the simulation with the scene animation click on the ACTION button and enjoy the show. After about 110 frames I got the following.

Here is a little viscosity table that I found. I am not sure what units RealFlow's viscosity setting is in so if this looks off tell me.

Viscosity Table
Substance Viscosity (Pa s)

Air: (at 18 oC) 1.9 x 10-5 (0.000019)
Water: (at 20 oC) 1 x 10-3 (0.001)
Canola Oil at room temp: 0.1
Motor Oil at room temp: 1
Corn syrup at room temp: 8
Pahoehoe lava: 100 to 1,000
A'a lava: 1000 to 10,000
Andesite lava: 106 to 107
Rhyolite lava: 1011 to 1012

Here are the files for this tutorial - it contains the MAX scene and the SD link file.
