Real-Time Deformable Models of Non-Linear Tissues by Model Reduction Techniques

Abstract : Biological soft tissues show highly non-linear behaviour and they are usually modelled using finite element method. The real-time simulation of human tissues is of particular interest with applications in surgical simulators or minimally invasive surgery simulation. In such user interactive applications it is commonly accepted that a minimum bandwidth of 20-60 Hz for visual feedback and a 300-1000 Hz for haptic display is necessary. The obtained solution using such FE methodology is very accurate, but the amount of computation is significant, prohibiting interactive applications for models with more than a couple of hundred elements. This is so since at each time step a new stiffness matrix is usually computed in a Newton-Raphson scheme, for instance, and then a large system of equations must be inverted that is computationally demanding.
