It has been technically challenging to effectively model and simulate elastic deformation of spline-based, thin-shell objects of complicated topology. This is primarily because traditional FEM are typically defined upon planar domain, therefore incapable of constructing complicated, smooth spline surfaces without patching/trimming. Moreover, at least C 1 continuity is required for the convergence of FEM solutions in thin-shell simulation. In this paper, we develop a new paradigm which elegantlydoi:10.1007/11784203_53 fatcat:odauljhibzfi5g7qxgvi6m6qxy
