Adaptive Simulation with Triangle Meshes

Speaker:  James F. O'Brien – Berkeley, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


This talk will discuss the development of high-fidelity finite element simulation methods based on adaptive mesh refinement. These methods dynamically refine and coarsen meshes so that they automatically conform to the geometric and dynamic detail of the simulated phenomena. Adaptation produces anisotropic meshes that align with the underlaying physical system allowing efficient modeling of fine-scale oriented structures. By preemptively reefing in anticipation of the formation detailed features these methods are able to preserves fine-scale dynamic behavior. Applications of these techniques that I'll discuss include clothing simulation, fracture propagation, and buckling shells.
