elasticity simulation in polygon

Recommended Posts

Hi fellows I want to add elasticity in my polygons. What I have to search? What mathematics laws, concepts or anything I need to search? Any help is welcomed Thanks for the support.

In the simplest case of a triangle:

1) Find the Barycenter
2) Attach a fictitious spring from each of the three vertices to the Barycenter
3) Use Hooke's law to calculate the strain achieved by the stress applied

The beast which you are seeking is named "Soft body dynamics". Wikipedia has a less-than-good article on it, and there are tons of hits on Google.

Thanks a lot for your help. I'll search this beast right now.
just one more question. To do all the things that I want, I'll do this:
- First of all, create the collision detection algorothm just to detect if a polygon touches the other;
- Second, create the hooke's law algorithm to provide the elasticity of my 3d model;

Am I forgot something?
