Fiber-based fracture model for simulating soft tissue tearing.
Journal - Studies in health technology and informatics (Netherlands )
In this paper, we propose a novel approach for simulating soft tissue tearing, using a model that takes into account the existence of fibers within the tissue. These fibers influence the deformation by introducing anisotropy, and impact the direction of propagation for the fracture during tearing. We describe our approach for simulating, in real-time, the deformation and fracture of anisotropic membranes, and we illustrate our method with the simulation of capsulorhexis, one of the critical steps of cataract surgery.
