Snow Business: Scientific Computing in the Movies and Beyond: Joseph Teran, UCLA
New applications of scientific computing for solid and fluid mechanics problems 
include simulation of virtual materials in movie visual effects and virtual 
surgery. Both disciplines demand physically realistic dynamics for materials 
like water, smoke, fire, and soft tissues. New algorithms are required for each 
area. Teran will speak about the simulation techniques required in these fields 
and will share some recent results including: simulated surgical repair of 
biomechanical soft tissues; extreme deformation of elastic objects with 
contact; high resolution incompressible flow; and clothing and hair dynamics. 
He will also discuss a new algorithm used for simulating the dynamics 
of snow in Disney's animated feature film, "Frozen".
