Simulation of natural phenomena for virtual worlds and characters is an important aspect of computer graphics that remains extremely demanded. The most challenging natural phenomena are those whose dynamics involve dramatic topological changes and therefore require sophisticated numerical approaches to achieve sufficient accuracy and visual realism. The need for computational efficiency, topological variability, and numerical stability has led trendy visual computing toward hybrid, Lagrangian/Eulerian methods, particularly the Particle-In-Cell variants. In this talk, I will discuss the recent research advances in the Material Point Method (MPM) — a generalization of the Fluid Implicit Particle (FLIP) method to solid mechanics.

Particularly I will cover two of our recent SIGGRAPH 2017 papers:

(1) Multi-species simulation of porous sand and water mixtures, Andre Pradhana Tampubolon, Theodore Gast, Gergely Klar, Chuyuan Fu, Joseph Teran, Chenfanfu Jiang, Ken Museth;

(2) Anisotropic Elastoplasticity for Cloth, Knit and Hair Frictional Contact, Chenfanfu Jiang, Theodore Gast, Joseph Teran. Both projects are based on MPM.

The technique is now extended much beyond simulating single granular material (snow or sand) as known in the past. The first paper presents an easy approach for simulating multi-species mixture of materials that is particularly important in describing continuum porous media. The second paper shows how physical elastoplastic consitutive modeling with MPM can help us automatically handle arbitrarily complex friction contacting scenarios in cloth, knit, and hair simulations, without the explicit need of implementing any collision detection or treatment.
