Adaptive refinement and coarsening is a technique being used to model human tissues for use in virtual surgical environments. The technique uses elements of finite element analysis and physically based modelling and provides a dramatic reduction in computational complexity. An example simulation shows that the adaptive scheme achieves interactive rates with complex deformable and fracturable models.
