In robotic swarm, the position of an element is often determined by the behaviour of its neighbours. Following this concept, we have realized a tool able to give a visually plausible simulation of continuum deformation. Without solving Newton’s equation, we reproduced some behaviour of bidimensional deformable bodies both according to the standard Cauchy model and second gradient theory. Fracture can be easily managed. The tool has computational cost advantage, and it is very flexible to adapt for complex geometry samples.

Abstract

In robotic swarm, the position of an element is often determined by the behaviour of its neighbours. Following this concept, we have realized a tool able to give a visually plausible simulation of continuum deformation. Without solving Newton’s equation, we reproduced some behaviour of bidimensional deformable bodies both according to the standard Cauchy model and second gradient theory. Fracture can be easily managed. The tool has computational cost advantage, and it is very flexible to adapt for complex geometry samples.
