  • Data-driven 3D shape modeling 

    Xi, Yongjian, 1971- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    3D shape modeling is essential for computer to understand our real world. So far, 3D shaping modeling is still an open issue. There are too much raw data around, but there is no uniform or standard way to translate them ...
  • Exact physics-based modeling and animation of highly flexible 1D mechanical systems 

    Li, Dong (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    In this thesis, we present a geometrically exact beam theory and a corresponding displacement-based finite-element model for modeling, analysis and natural-looking animation of highly flexible beam components of multi-body ...
  • Extracting extremal features from 3D volume data 

    Cheng, Minxin (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    Extremal features are implicit curve, surface and points features defined on 3D data with a scalar field and a tensor field. The extremal curves, surfaces and points are the set of points reaches directional extremal, under ...
