The challenge of animating believable dragons was presented to Disney Feature Animation and The Secret Lab (TSL) for the film "Reign of Fire". The film called for 100ft creatures with wing spans of 300ft that could undergo enormous speeds and accelerations. The artistic direction required each dragon to have wings that transition between a variety of physical behaviors and interact with the environment. To solve this challenge the Muscle and Skin system used in Disney's Dinosaur [Eskuri 2000… Expand
Anisotropic elasticity for inversion-safety and element rehabilitation
An analysis of anisotropic hyperelasticity, specifically transverse isotropy, that obtains closed-form expressions for the eigendecompositions of many common energies is presented and used to rehabilitate badly-conditioned finite elements. Expand
