Realization of efficient mass-spring simulations on graphics hardware
Diploma Thesis, TU München, 2004 (bib)

Physics-based simulation of deformable objects is a valuable tool for creating realistic and plausible computer graphics. However, even the calculations involved for simple abstractions like mass-spring models are highly demand- ing, especially when real-time simulation is desired. This diploma thesis explores the possibility to use the powerful vector computation engine present in modern 3D graphics hardware for these calculations and shows a significant performance gain over CPU-based solutions, which in turn allows the use of larger and more detailed models.
