GPU-Accelerated Shape Simplification for Mechanical-Based Applications

Abstract

In this paper we present a GPU-based method for removing shape details of 3D models. 3D models used in finite element analysis (FEA) are often either constructed for the purpose of manufacturing, or a result of 3D scanning. The models therefore contain shape details that are neither important for FEA nor compatible with the mechanical hypotheses. Vertex… (More)
