Subdivision surfaces are an attractive representation when modeling arbitrary topology freeform surfaces and show great promise for applications in engineering design [5, 6] and computer animation [10]. Interference detection is a critical tool in many of these applications. In this paper we derive normal bounds for subdivision surfaces and use these to develop an efficient algorithm for (self) interference detection.

This paper presents a multilevel algorithm to accelerate the numerical solution of thin shell finite element problems described by subdivision surfaces. Subdivision surfaces have become a widely used geometric representation for general curved three dimensional boundary models and thin shells as they provide a compact and robust framework for modeling 3D geometry. More recently, the shape functions used in the subdivision surfaces framework have been proposed as candidates for use as finite element basis functions in the analysis and simulation of the mechanical deformation of thin shell structures. When coupled with standard solvers, however, such simulations do not scale well. Run time costs associated with highresolution simulations (10^5 degrees of freedom or more) become prohibitive.

We assume the shells to be thin and to obey the KirchhoffLove theory. The shell is spatially discretized by means of subdivision shell elements. Fracture is allowe ..."

We develop a finiteelement method for the simulation of dynamic shell fracture and fragmentation based on cohesive models of fracture. We assume the shells to be thin and to obey the KirchhoffLove theory. The shell is spatially discretized by means of subdivision shell elements. Fracture is allowed only along element edges and is assumed to be governed by a cohesive law. When coupled to the shell kinematics, the cohesive model accounts both for inplane or tearing, shearing, and bending or hinge modes of fracture. In order to follow the propagation and branching of cracks, subdivision shell elements are prefractured ab initio. Prior to crack nucleation, crack opening is constrained by means of a penalty method in implicit calculations, or by a projection or displacement averaging method in explicit calculations.

We describe an approach to construct hexahedral solid NURBS (NonUniform Rational BSplines) meshes for patientspecific vascular geometric models from imaging data for use in isogeometric analysis. First, image processing techniques, such as contrast enhancement, filtering, classification, and segmentation, are used to improve the quality of the input imaging data. Then, luminal surfaces are extracted by isocontouring the preprocessed data, followed by the extraction of vascular skeleton via Voronoi and Delaunay diagrams. Next, the skeletonbased sweeping method is used to construct hexahedral control meshes. Templates are designed for various branching configurations to decompose the geometry into mapped meshable patches. Each patch is then meshed using onetoone sweeping techniques, and boundary vertices are projected to the luminal surface. Finally, hexahedral solid NURBS are constructed and used in isogeometric analysis of blood flow. Piecewise linear hexahedral meshes can also be obtained using this approach. Examples of patientspecific arterial models are presented.

Subdivision surfaces have emerged as a powerful representation for surface modeling and design. They address important limitations of traditional splinebased methods, such as the ability to handle arbitrary topologies and to support multiscale editing operations. In this paper we survey existing subdivisionbased modeling methods with emphasis on interactive tools for styling and decoration of 3D models.

Finite element methods are used in various areas ranging from mechanical engineering to computer graphics and biomedical applications. In engineering, a critical point is the gap between CAD and CAE. This gap results from different representations used for geometric design and physical simulation. We present two different approaches for using subdivision solids as the only representation for modeling, simulation and visualization. This has the advantage that no data must be converted between the CAD and CAE phases. The first approach is based on an adaptive and featurepreserving tetrahedral subdivision scheme. The second approach is based on CatmullClark subdivision solids.
