Super Space Clothoids

A new 3D, discrete rod primitive based on spatial clothoidal elements that accurately and compactly captures the complex shape and motion of winding strands such as vine tendrils, hair ringlets, or curled ribbons.

Thin Skin Elastodynamics

A Eulerian approach for simulating thin hyperelastic skin. Previous methods are difficult to use for simulating thin skin due to the need to deal with non-conforming meshes, collision detection, and contact response. This method avoids these problems by working directly on the surface of the skin itself.

Folding and Crumpling Adaptive Sheets

A technique for simulating plastic deformation in sheets of thin materials such as crumpled paper, dented metal, and wrinkled cloth. The simulation uses adaptive mesh refinement to dynamically align mesh edges with folds and creases, allowing efficient modeling of sharp features and avoiding bend-locking artifacts.

Adaptive Fracture Simulation of Multi-Layered Thin Plates

This paper develops adaptive fracture-simulation techniques to efficiently and realistically simulate multi-layered thin-plate fracture effects, including those caused by tearing motions and in-plane stretching motions.
