Using quads instead of linear elements in the FEM formulation opens up some interesting opportunities. This is a video of the baseline project.
Some notes on the math of using quads.
Test render of our lab's latest elasticity simulation method
Simulation done using own tetrahedral FEM algorithm. The algorithm is able to recover elements from fully collapsed - or even inverted - states.
Sample rendering from my flow simulation code. GPU computation was done in Shader Model 3! (Yep, good old pre-CUDA times!)
