Fracturing Rigid Materials

  title={Fracturing Rigid Materials},
  author={Zhaosheng Bao and Jeong-Mo Hong and Joseph Teran and Ronald Fedkiw},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics},
We propose a novel approach to fracturing (and denting) brittle materials. To avoid the computational burden imposed by the stringent time step restrictions of explicit methods or with solving nonlinear systems of equations for implicit methods, we treat the material as a fully rigid body in the limit of infinite stiffness. In addition to a triangulated surface mesh and level set volume for collisions, each rigid body is outfitted with a tetrahedral mesh upon which finite element analysis can… CONTINUE READING
