  • Friction Handling for Penalty-Based Methods 

    Lazarevych, Olexiy; Spillmann, Jonas; Renner, Christoph; Szekely, Gabor; Harders, Matthias (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In order to handle collisions between interacting deformable objects, the penalty method is widely employed since it is simple to implement and computationally inexpensive. In this paper a novel penalty method for handling ...
  • Optimized Impulse-Based Dynamic Simulation 

    Bayer, Daniel; Diziol, Raphael; Bender, Jan (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The impulse-based dynamic simulation is a recent method to compute physically based simulations. It supports the simulation of rigid-bodies and particles connected by all kinds of implicit constraints. In recent years the ...
  • Nonsmooth Newton Method for Fischer Function Reformulation of Contact Force Problems for Interactive Rigid Body Simulation 

    Silcowitz, Morten; Niebe, Sarah; Erleben, Kenny (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In interactive physical simulation, contact forces are applied to prevent rigid bodies from penetrating each other. Accurate contact force determination is a computationally hard problem. Thus, in practice one trades ...
  • GPU Accelerated Tandem Traversal of Blocked Bounding Volume Hierarchy Collision Detection for Multibody Dynamics 

    Damkjær, Jesper; Erleben, Kenny (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The performance bottleneck of physics based animation is often the collision detection. It is well known by practitioners that the collision detection may consume more than half of the simulation time. In this work, we ...

    Serna, Sebastian Pena; Silva, Joao Goncalo Botica Ribeiro da; Stork, Andre; Marcos, Aderito Fernandes (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    A linear system is a fundamental building block for several mesh-based computer graphics applications such as simulation, shape deformation, virtual surgery, and fluid/smoke animation, among others. Nevertheless, such a ...
  • A Sub-world Coupling Scheme for Haptic Rendering of Physically-based Rigid Bodies Simulation 

    Glondu, Loeiz; Marchal, Maud; Dumont, Georges (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In the virtual reality context, the use of haptic rendering as an additional sensory modality significantly improves the degree of realism of virtual worlds. The physical realism of the interaction between the user and the ...
