The application of a particle method to incompressible viscous fluid flow problem and its physics-based computer graphics are presented. The method is based on the MPS (Moving Particle Semi-implicit) scheme using logarithmic weighting function to stabilize the spurious oscillatory solutions for the pressure fields which are governed by Poisson equation. The physics-based computer graphics consist of the POV-Ray (Persistence of Vision Raytracer) rendering using marching cubes algorithm as polygonization. The standard MPS scheme is widely utilized as a particle strategy for the free surface flow, the problem of moving boundary, multi-physics/multi-scale ones, and so forth. Numerical results demonstrate the workability and the validity of the present approach through dam-breaking flow problem.
