We present a new model reduction approach to fluid simulation, enabling large, real-time, detailed flows with continuous user interaction. Our reduced model can also handle moving obstacles immersed in the flow. We create separate models for the velocity field and for each moving boundary, and show that the coupling forces may be reduced as well. Our results indicate that surprisingly few basis functions are needed to resolve small but visually important features such as spinning vortices.
