We present an efficient framework for fluid-solid coupling, including both rigid and elastic bodies. Based on a unified particle model, we apply different coupling scheme for fluid-solid and solid-solid coupling respectively. Realistic and versatility are achieved by coupling all the objects adaptively. With the help of GPU accelerating, we gain a real-time simulation.
