## Eulerian Solids

Soft tissues are usually simulated using the Finite Element Method (FEM), with the Lagrangian approach that is the standard in engineering. In this approach the simulation tracks the position of material points over time. In contrast, in an Eulerian approach the space in which the […]

## ArtDefo: Real Time Elastostatics using Boundary Elements (BEM) and Precomputed Green’s functions

We developed a general framework for low-latency simulation of large linear elastostatic deformable models, suitable for real time animation and haptic interaction in virtual environments. The deformation is described using precomputed Green’s functions, and runtime boundary value problems are solved using Capacitance Matrix Algorithms. We introduced boundary element (BEM) techniques for precomputing Green’s functions, and […]
