Efficient Cutting for Haptic Surgery Simulation using Hybrid Deformation Models

This research project aims to expand Symgery’s line of surgical training products by simulating cutting and tearing of physical models in real-time. Cutting and tearing of simulated models typically requires additional computational overhead due to post-processing of the volumetric mesh. However, our approach will render the process to be more efficient by using a hybrid model that combines continuum FEM models with mass-spring systems within a position based dynamics (PBD) framework. Implementation on a GPU and multi-core CPU will further improve performance.
