Accurate biomechanical modelling of soft tissue is a key aspect for achieving realistic surgical simulations. However, because medical simulation is a multi-disciplinary area, researchers do not always have sufficient resources to develop an efficient and physically rigorous model for organ deformation. We address this issue by implementing a CUDA-based nonlinear finite element model into the SOFA open source framework. The proposed model is an anisotropic visco-hyperelastic constitutive… CONTINUE READING
