 Physically Based Modeling: Principles and Practice

Full Day | Intermediate

A systematic introduction to physically based modeling techniques, including differential equation basics, dynamics of particles and mass/spring systems, continuum methods for simulating non-rigid objects, rigid body dynamics, kinematic and dynamic constraints, and collision and contact. Detailed examples of the application of these techniques to animation production are presented.

Who Should Attend
Computer graphics researchers and implementors who wish to develop a solid understanding of physical methods as applied to animation and modeling. It is of particular interest to those who wish to implement physically based modeling techniques and/or read and critically appraise technical papers in the field.
