DescriptionWe present an incremental collision handling algorithm for GPU-based interactive cloth simulation. Our approach exploits the spatial and temporal coherence between successive iterations of an optimization-based solver for collision response computation. We present a novel incremental continuous collision detection algorithm that keeps track of deforming vertices along with spatial hashing. We use a non-linear GPU-based impact zone solver to resolve the penetrations. We combine our collision handling algorithm with implicit integration to use large time steps. Our overall algorithm, I-Cloth, can simulate complex cloth deformation with a few hundred thousand vertices at 2-8 frames per second on a commodity GPU.
We highlight its performance on different benchmarks and observe up to 7-10X speedup over prior algorithms.
