I am a PhD candidate in mathematics at UCLA. My advisor is Joseph Teran. I am currently researching computational solid mechanics and scientific computing.
Drucker-Prager Elastoplasticity for Sand Animation
ACM Transactions on Graphics (SIGGRAPH 2016)
G. Klar, T. Gast, A. Pradhana, C. Fu, C. Schroeder, C. Jiang, J. Teran
We demonstrate that the Drucker-Prager plastic flow model combined with a
Hencky-strain-based hyperelasticity simulated with MPM accurately recreates a wide range of visual
sand phenomena with moderate computational expense.
