A Semi-Implicit Material-Point Method for Continuum Simulation of Granular Materials

A new continuum-based method for simulating large-scale granular materials. Unlike previous work, this method fully accounts for the non-smooth Drucker-Prager rheology using a material-point method discretization. This discrete system is solved robustly and efficiently by leveraging frictional contact solvers originally developed in discrete contact mechanics.

Drucker-Prager Elastoplasticity for Sand Animation

This work extends the Material Point Method to simulate sand dynamics using an elasto-plastic continuum-based formulation. Using the Drucker-Prager plastic flow model naturally models the frictional interactions characteristic of sand dynamics and accurately recreates a wide range of visual sand phenomena with moderate computational expense.

Fast Approximations for Boundary-Element-Based Brittle Fracture Simulation

A method for estimating stress-intensity factors in a brittle fracture simulation based on the surface displacement field, as well as approximating the additional displacement due to growing fractures. This results in a fast quasi-static fracture simulation, which is coupled to a rigid-body dynamics system.
