For the second time, an award program has been organized to reward the best open source contributions of 2020. All contributions were eligible for application: it could be an open-source plugin, a pull-request on GitHub, a video, a tutorial or documentation pages.
The program included two prizes. The winners have been announced on 24th November during the 2020 SOFA Symposium:
Plugin: Plastic beam model
Plugin: SOFA RHI
|An extension to the BeamFEMForceField component, which implements a plastic mechanical behavior. This allows to model materials which are able to undergo permanent deformation such as metals. The underlying mechanical computation is based on a Von Mises-Hill plasticity model, and the nonlinear mechanics are solved with a radial return algorithm. This component was originally developed to simulate coronary stent deployment.||Rendering Hardware Interface API for SOFA. Render your simulation using either OpenGL ES, Direct3D 11, Metal or Vulkan with SOFA.|
