Tools for creating, moving, and discretizing rigid bodies
About the package
The purpose of this package is to provide tools for rigid bodies with point-discretized surfaces. It includes methods for
- a library of surface shape definitions and associated point discretizations
- calculation of geometric properties
- rigid-body and prescribing deformation motion and transformation of surface points
- collections of multiple rigid bodies
These tools support a variety of classes of problems, including those that involve bodies interacting with fluids, in which we would immerse these point-discretized representations into a computational grid.
