Super-Helices for Hair Modeling and Dynamics
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
We present core components of a hair modeling and dynamics solution for the feature film industry. Recent research results in hair simulation are exploited as a dynamics model based on solving the Euler-Lagrange equations of motion for a discretized Cosserat curve is implemented in its entirety. Solutions to the dynamics equations are derived and a framework for symbolic integration is outlined. The resulting system is not unconditionally positive definite but requires balanced physical parameters in order to be solvable using a regular linear solver. Several implementation examples are presented, as well as a novel modeling technique based on non-linear optimization.
