Deformable Simplicial Complex (DSC) method
The official implementation of the DSC method in 3 dimensions.
The ability to virtually track deformable interfaces has many applications and is therefore of great interest. However, Eulerian methods, such as the level set method, tend to suffer from numerical difusion and Lagrangian methods are mostly not able to handle topology changes. This was the reason for developing a new method, the DSC method. The purpose of the DSC method is to be able to model the deformations of objects which are represented by an explicit representation of the interface. Furthermore, it is able to model large deformations and handle topology changes.
For installation instructions as well as a description of how to use the DSC code, see the DSC wiki
