A Nonsmooth Newton Solver for Capturing Exact Coulomb Friction in Fiber Assemblies

We focus on the challenging problem of simulating thin elastic rods in contact, in the presence of friction. Most previous approaches in computer graphics rely on a linear complementarity formulation for handling contact in a stable way, and approximate Coulombs’s friction law for making the problem tractable. In contrast, following the seminal work by Alart […]
