Modeling Dynamic Hair as a Continuum

  title={Modeling Dynamic Hair as a Continuum},
  author={Sunil Hadap and Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann},
  journal={Comput. Graph. Forum},
In this paper we address the difficult problem of hair dynamics, particularly hair-hair and hair-air interactions. To model these interactions, we propose to consider hair volume as a continuum. Subsequently, we treat the interaction dynamics to be fluid dynamics. This proves to be a strong as well as viable approach for an otherwise very complex phenomenon. However, we retain the individual character of hair, which is vital to visually realistic rendering of hair animation. For that, we… CONTINUE READING
