Dynamic simulation of waters is a significant research subject, but the research and simulation of the water drops generating ripples is relatively less. The research on the ripples motion is great significance due to the indispensability of it in the special environments. In our research, we study the method of adding dynamic water ripple effects in 2D image on Web page, 3D animation and virtual reality. By the means of shape simulation, we add animation effects for the web page through creating cells of table combined with transparent special effect files of Flash. we achieve the good reality ripple effect by using simple dynamics and kinematic principle to create models in the 3D animation. By using the combination of 3dMax and Realflow software, we achieve more realistic simulation of the effect of dripping ripple. In the virtual reality system, the appropriate algorithm is applied in program to simulate ripples correctly. These methods are applied to different environments and the results are realistic.
