This seminar introduces how to simulate elastic objects which include 1D hair, 2D cloth, 3D flesh, and the coupling between different-dimensional objects. Elastic objects have been popular subjects in graphics, and we often categorize them based on their dimensionality (i.e., 1D, 2D, 3D) as objects with different dimensionality are subject to different specialized types of forces or energies. For example, 1D models are subject to stretching, twisting, and bending, 2D models can have planar deformation and bending, and 3D models only exhibit volumetric deformation. Hair strands, cloths or clothes, and rubber or flesh would be representative examples in each dimension, respectively, which we often see in movies or games.
The importance of each single-type model is obvious but each can only represent a subset of elastic materials: purely 1D, 2D, or 3D materials. Many real-world objects are comprised of an interconnected blend of different types, and cannot naturally or efficiently be expressed with just one type alone. Leveraging the single-type models, this seminar also aims to provide the missing connection strategies between different single-type models.
