This paper presents a novel approach for simulating the dynamic coupling between a tree and raindrops based on physical deformation and fluid simulation. By the approach, tree animation in the rain can be simulated in a two-resolution way: branch motion and leaf motion. Interaction coupling liquid motion-based 2.5D shallow water equations on the hydrophilic surface with a flexible petiole is well implemented by a special design for various phenomena simulations.
