Anisotropic Elastoplasticity for Cloth, Knit and Hair Frictional Contact

Chenfanfu Jiang, Theodore Gast, Joseph Teran The typical elastic surface or curve simulation method takes a Lagrangian approach and consists of three components: time integration, collision detection and collision response. The Lagrangian view is beneficial because it naturally allows for tracking of the codimensional manifold, however collision must then be detected and resolved separately. Eulerian […]

Interactive Paper Tearing

Camille Schreck, Damien Rohmer, Stefanie Hahmann We propose an efficient method to model paper tearing in the context of interactive modeling. The method uses geometrical information to automatically detect potential starting points of tears. We further introduce a new hybrid geometrical and physical-based method to compute the trajectory of tears while procedurally synthesizing high resolution […]

Non-smooth developable geometry for interactively animating paper crumpling

Camille Schreck, Damien Rohmer, Stefanie Hahmann, Marie-Paule Cani, Shuo Jin, Charlie Wang, Jean-Francois Bloch We present the first method to animate sheets of paper at interactive rates, while automatically generating a plausible set of sharp features when the sheet is crumpled. The key idea is to interleave standard physically-based simulation steps with procedural generation of […]

Real-time Hair Mesh Simulation

Kui Wu, Cem Yuksel We present a robust real-time hair simulation method using hair meshes. Leveraging existing simulation models for sheet-based cloth, we introduce a volumetric force model for incorporating hair interactions inside the hair mesh volume. We also introduce a position correction method that minimizes the local deformation of the hair mesh due to […]

Interactive Detailed Cutting of Thin Sheets

Pierre-Luc Manteaux, Wei-Lun Sun, Francois Faure, Marie-Paule Cani, James F. O’Brien In this paper we propose a method for the interactive detailed cutting of deformable thin sheets. Our method builds on the ability of frame-based simulation to solve for dynamics using very few control frames while embedding highly detailed geometry – here an adaptive mesh that […]

Stable Constrained Dynamics

Maxime Tournier, Matthieu Nesme, Benjamin Gilles, Francois Faure We present a unification of the two main approaches to simulate deformable solids, namely elasticity and constraints. Elasticity accurately handles soft to moderately stiff objects, but becomes numerically hard as stiffness increases. Constraints efficiently handle high stiffness, but when integrated in time they can suffer from instabilities […]

Yarn-Level Simulation of Woven Cloth

Gabriel Cirio, Jorge Lopez-Moreno, David Miraut, Miguel A. Otaduy The large-scale mechanical behavior of woven cloth is determined by the mechanical properties of the yarns, the weave pattern, and frictional contact between yarns. Using standard simulation methods for elastic rod models and yarn-yarn contact handling, the simulation of woven garments at realistic yarn densities is […]

Multi-layer skin simulation with adaptive constraints

Pengbo Li, Paul Kry We present an approach for physics based simulation of the wrinkling of multi-layer skin with heterogeneous material properties. Each layer of skin is simulated with an adaptive mesh, with the different layers coupled via constraints that only permit wrinkle deformation at wavelengths that match the physical properties of the multi-layer model. […]

Subspace Clothing Simulation Using Adaptive Bases

Fabian Hahn, Bernhard Thomaszewski, Stelian Coros, Robert W. Sumner, Forrester Cole, Mark Meyer, Tony DeRose, and Markus Gross We present a new approach to clothing simulation using low-dimensional linear subspaces with temporally adaptive bases. Our method exploits full-space simulation training data in order to construct a pool of low-dimensional bases distributed across pose space. For […]

View-Dependent Adaptive Cloth Simulation

Woojong Koh, Rahul Narain, James F. O’Brien This paper describes a method for view-dependent cloth simulation using dynamically adaptive mesh refinement and coarsening. Given a prescribed camera motion, the method adjusts the criteria controlling refinement to account for visibility and apparent size in the camera’s view. Objectionable dynamic artifacts are avoided by anticipative refinement and smoothed […]
