An Adaptive Contact Model for the Robust Simulation of Knots
In this paper, we present an adaptive model for dynamically deforming hyper-elastic rods. In contrast to existing approaches, adaptively introduced control points are not governed by geometric subdivision rules. Instead, their states are determined by employing a non-linear energy-minimization approach. Since valid control points are computed instantaneously, post-stabilization schemes are avoided and the stability of the dynamic simulation is improved. Due to inherently complex contact configurations, the simulation of knot tying using rods is a challenging task. In order to address this problem, we combine our adaptive model with a robust and accurate collision handling method for elastic rods. By employing our scheme, complex knot configurations can be simulated in a physically plausible way.
