Figure 1. Melting the Stanford bunny starting cold at the bottom and hot at the top. Abstract This paper presents a new visually realistic animation technique for objects that melt and flow. It simulates viscoplastic properties of materials such as metal, plastic, wax, polymer and lava. The technique consists in modeling the object by the transition of a non-Newtonian fluid with high viscosity to a liquid of low viscosity. During the melting, the viscosity is formulated using the Generaldoi:10.1109/sibgrapi.2006.33 dblp:conf/sibgrapi/PaivaPLT06 fatcat:o5rq5b4hfravdewckgo3gpaj34
