  • Exact physics-based modeling and animation of highly flexible 1D mechanical systems 

    Li, Dong, student (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 ...
  • Preconditioned conjugate gradient solver for structural problems 

    Li, Xiangge (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Matrix solvers play a crucial role in solving real world physics problem. In engineering practice, transition analysis is most often used, which requires a series of similar matrices to be solved. However, any specific ...
  • Shape reconstruction from volumetric images 

    Heckenberg, Gregory (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    This thesis presents the research algorithms and techniques applied to three volumetric image problems(1) high quality mesh reconstruction from distance field volumetric data, (2) distance field surface approximation from ...
  • Single view reconstruction and camera calibration using 2D room scene image 

    Yang, Xiaochen (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Single view reconstruction is a fundamental problem in computer vision. One aim is to automatically reconstruct 3D model from a single view 2D room image scene. For humans, we have amazing ability to instantly grasp the ...
