Simulating smoke in real-time using fluid dynamics

The OCaml Journal just published an article about computational fluid dynamics:

"In scientific computing, the task of simulating fluid flow accurately by solving the Navier-Stokes equation is notoriously difficult. However, it is possible to compute numerical approximations quickly enough that fluids dynamics may be simulated in real time. This article describes a simple fluid dynamics simulator that uses OpenGL to visualize the results in real time..."
