Beschreibung

This primer discusses a numerical formulation of the theory of an elastic rod, known as a discrete elastic rod, that was recently developed in a series of papers by Miklós Bergou et al. Their novel formulation of discrete elastic rods represents an exciting new method to simulate and analyze the behavior of slender bodies that can be modeled using an elastic rod. The formulation has been extensively employed in computer graphics and is highly cited. In the primer, we provide relevant background from both discrete and classical differential geometry so a reader familiar with classic rod theories can appreciate, comprehend, and use Bergou et al.'s computational efficient formulation of a nonlinear rod theory. The level of coverage is suitable for graduate students in mechanics and engineering sciences.



Adopts a comprehensive, yet short, introduction to a new and promising numerical formulation

Reinforces concepts with worked examples expressed in a consistent notation

Presented in sufficient detail for the reader versed in mechanics to start using discrete elastic rod formulation in problems

Features an introduction to widely cited works published in the past decade
