A three-dimensional nonlinear finite element method implementation toward surgery simulation
(Bilkent University, 2011)
Finite Element Method (FEM) is a widely used numerical technique for finding approximate solutions to the complex problems of engineering and mathematical physics that cannot be solved with analytical methods. In most ...
Animated mesh simplification based on saliency metrics
(Bilkent University, 2008)
Mesh saliency identifies the visually important parts of a mesh. Mesh simplification algorithms using mesh saliency as simplification criterion preserve the salient features of a static 3D model. In this thesis, we propose ...
Modeling and animating personalized faces
(Bilkent University, 2002)
A very important and challenging problem in computer graphics is modeling and animation of individualized face models. In this thesis, we describe a facial modeling and animation system attempting to address this problem. ...
