The Development of a Physically based Virtual Animal Model using Soft-tissue Parameter Testing

soft tissue, surgical simulation, deformable models


The development of a Virtual Rat has been ongoing. Dur ing the development the need for physically based simu lation has been established. We present the results of in vitro testing for the examination of soft-tissue properties, and compare the results with a Finite Element simulation of the test scenario. We also provide results for the use of these obtained material properties within a mass-spring simulation engine.
