    • Rethinking Shortest Path: An Energy Expenditure Approach 

      Mousas, Christos; Newbury, Paul; Anagnostopoulos, Christos-Nikolaos (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
      Considering that humans acting in constrained environments do not always plan according to shortest path criteria. rather, they conceptually measure the path which minimises the amount of expended energy. Hence, virtual ...
    • RPI-MATLAB-Simulator: A Tool for Efficient Research and Practical Teaching in Multibody Dynamics 

      Williams, Jedediyah; Lu, Ying; Niebe, Sarah; Andersen, Michael; Erleben, Kenny; Trinkle, Jeffrey C. (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
      We present the RPI-MATLAB-Simulator (RPIsim) as an open source tool for research and education in multibody dynamics. RPIsim is designed and organized to be extended. Its modular design allows users to edit or add new ...
    • Tridiagonal Matrix Formulation for Inextensible Hair Strand Simulation 

      Han, Dongsoo; Harada, Takahiro (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
      This paper proposes a method to simulate inextensible hair strands using tridiagonal matrix formulation in which distance constraints are formulated as a linear system. The proposed method avoids constructing a full matrix ...
