Group meeting surgical simulation and multi resolution approaches to surgical cutting

Thank you for the two presentations from Hadrien and Phuoc both from ICube at university of Strasbourg. 

We discussed methods for 

  • Haptic feedback for interactions with hyperelastic materials 
  • Lattice continuum coupling for multi resolution simulation of fracture in tissue 

The meeting led to direct collaborations between Elisa Schenone and Hadrien s team and to a planned visit for Kostya in Strasbourg for experimental aspects of needle insertion in gels and small animals. 

Congratulations to Giorgios Bourantas who coded today stable point collocation methods for elasticity based on DC PSE approximants and to Elisa Schenone for coming up with a smart model reduction approach. Both papers will be coming up soon.
