Biomechanical Simulation and Control of Hands and Tendinous Systems

Using an Eulerian-on-Lagrangian discretization to simulate tendons of the human hand, this method provides biomechanically realistic simulation of human hand dynamics. Two control methods and a muscle model are presented with various examples.

GRIDiron: An Interactive Authoring and Cognitive Training Foundation for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Procedures

An interactive simulation framework for authoring surgical tissue-manipulation procedures using physics-based simulation to animate the flesh. The technique employs embedded simulation on a hybrid mesh/grid structure to exploit regularity while supporting thin surgical incisions. The methodology is demonstrated on reconstructive procedures on the human scalp.
