Solid-Fluid Interaction with Surface-Tension-Dominant Contact

This paper proposes a novel three-way coupling framework to simulate the surface-tension-dominant contact between rigid and fluid, which using a Lagrangian surface membrane to handle the interactions between bodies and fluid.

Unsupervised Co-part Segmentation through Assembly

This paper proposes an unsupervised Co-part segmentation approach, which leverages shape correlation information between different frames in the video to achieve semantic part segmentation. We have designed a novel network structure which achieves self-supervision through a dual procedure of part-assembly to form a closed loop with part-segmentation. Additionally, we have developed several new loss functions that ensure consistent, compact and meaningful part segmentation and the intermediate transformations with clear explainable physical meaning.

Learning Elastic Constitutive Material and Damping Models

This paper presents a new method for estimating nonlinear constitutive models from trajectories of surface data. The key insight is to have a parametric material correction model learn the error of the elastic and damping properties of a nominal material.

A Level-Set Method for Magnetic Substance Simulation

This paper presents a versatile, numerical approach to simulating various magnetic phenomena using a level-set method, which contains a novel two-way coupling mechanism between a magnetic field and magnetizable objects.

Example-driven Virtual Cinematography by Learning Camera Behaviors

In this paper, we propose an example-driven camera controller which can extract camera behaviors from an example film clip and re-apply the extracted behaviors to a 3D animation, through learning from a collection of camera motions.

Deformation Capture and Modeling of Soft Objects

We present a data-driven method that can capture deformation of generic soft objects in high fidelity with low-cost depth sensors; and estimate plausible deformation parameters from these pure kinematic motion trajectories, without requiring any force-displacement measurements as is common in traditional methods. Using the learned deformation models, new motion and deformation can be synthesized at interactive rates to respond to dynamic perturbations or satisfy user-specified constraints.

Simulation and Control of Skeleton-driven Soft Body Characters

We have presented a two-way simulation and control framework for soft characters with inherent skeletons. We propose a novel pose-based plasticity model that extends the corotated linear elasticity model to achieve large skin deformation around joints. We further reconstruct controls from reference trajectories captured from human subjects by augmenting a sampling-based algorithm.

Adaptive Image-based Intersection Volume

The accuracy of intersection volume is important for plausible collision response. In this paper we have presented the first imagebased collision detection method that provides the controllability of intersection volume without explicit geometrical computation, and demonstrated its relevance for precise contact modeling. Its computation combines rasterization at moderate resolution with adaptive ray casting, which allows more precise contact modeling where needed and a reduced memory footprint
