No mesh inguinal hernia repair Complete cure from groin hernia is now possible with sarda's repair technique....... Mesh is a foreign body. Therefore, its use in hernia repairs is known to cause all sorts of complications like pain, recurrence, infection etc. We have developed an innovative new technique of inguinal hernia repair without mesh. It uses your own body muscle for repair and gives virtually complete cure from inguinal hernia problem. An undetached strip of the external oblique aponeurosis is stitched on the weak area between the muscle arch and the inguinal ligament to form a new, strong and physiologically dynamic posterior wall that gives protection and prevents re-herniation. Normally patient goes home in a day after surgery and can drive car and go to office in 3-4 days time. This "sarda's hernia repair" is now followed in many countries all over the world. We are surprised to see the enquiries from many patients in the developed countries asking for this repair in their country. This is because this operation does not use any foreign body like mesh for repair and therefore there are no complications as seen in mesh repairs. A visit to Topix or other hernia forums show thousands of posts showing sufferings of many patients due to mesh repairs. But still why surgeons from developed countries are still interested in mesh repairs is a big question for us. Please visit our website for more details:

Deforming Meshes that Split and Merge, SIGGRAPH 2009 We present a method for accurately tracking the moving surface of deformable materials in a manner that gracefully handles topological changes.We employ a Lagrangian surface tracking method, and we use a triangle mesh for our surface representation so that fine features can be retained. We make topological changes to the mesh by first identifying merging or splitting events at a particular grid resolution, and then locally creating new pieces of the mesh in the affected cells using a standard isosurface creation method.We stitch the new, topologically simplified portion of the mesh to the rest of the mesh at the cell boundaries. Our method detects and treats topological events with an emphasis on the preservation of detailed features, while simultaneously simplifying those portions of the material that are not visible. Our surface tracker is not tied to a particular method for simulating deformable materials. In particular, we show results from two significantly different simulators: a Lagrangian FEM simulator with tetrahedral elements, and an Eulerian grid-based fluid simulator. Although our surface tracking method is generic, it is particularly well-suited for simulations that exhibit fine surface details and numerous topological events. Highlights of our results include merging of viscoplastic materials with complex geometry, a taffy-pulling animation with many fold and merge events, and stretching and slicing of stiff plastic material.

Paving the path towards automatic hexahedral mesh generation Xevi Roca advised by Josep Sarrate Laboratori de Càlcul Numèric (LaCàN), Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada III, Programa de Doctorat de Matemàtica Aplicada Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya web: www-lacan.upc.edu This thesis deals with the development of hexahedral mesh generation technology. The process of generating hexahedral meshes is not fully automatic and it is a time consuming task. Therefore, it is important to develop tools that facilitate the generation of hexahedral meshes. To this end, a mesh projection method, a sweeping technique, a block-meshing algorithm, and an interactive mesh generation environment are presented and developed. Competitive implementations of the sweeping method use mesh projection techniques based on affine methods. Standard affine methods have several drawbacks related to the statement of rank deficient sets of normal equations. To overcome these drawbacks a new affine method that depends on two vector parameters is presented and ***yzed. Moreover, an automatic procedure that selects these two vector parameters is detailed. The resulting projection procedure preserves the shape of projected meshes. Then, this procedure is incorporated in a new sweeping tool. This tool generates inner layers of nodes that preserve the curvature of the cap surfaces. The sweeping tool is able to mesh extrusion geometries defined by non-linear sweeping trajectories, non-constant cross sections along the sweep axis, non-parallel cap surfaces, and cap ...

Of A Mesh - Guillotine I like this band a lot. Got their two EP's. History: "New York City's most famous dark-rock band in the '80s, Of a Mesh featured the dramatic crooning of Alan Dollgener duetting with Samara Lubelski's haunting violin atop a claustrophobic cobweb of sound. Of a Mesh formed in the fall of 1983 in New York City, led by Dollgener and Lubelski. They took their name from Maya Deren's 1943 avant-garde silent film Meshes of the Afternoon. Of a Mesh honed their spectral proto-gothic craft on two legendary demo sessions during 1984-85 (highlighted by fan favorites "CIT" and "Twist"), and numerous gigs at venues like Danceteria, CBGB, Subway, and Pyramid, opening for the likes of Sonic Youth and Butthole Surfers."

Second Life Mesh: The Mailbox My submission to a Linden Lab call for machinima, showing off the abilities of mesh in Second Life. This mailbox was built in Google SketchUp 7, and uploaded using the Secondlife Mesh Beta Client. The video is short, because we were limited to one minute submissions. I didn't do any texturing or anything like that, because I wanted to simply show "it's easy". The mesh took about 15 minutes to build in SketchUp, and was exported using the free version of the software, to collada (DAE) format, then uploaded to Second Life. It's not really much of a machinima (there's no plot or story here), more of just a 'fast motion" speed build to show the simplicity involved, both in Sketchup, and in terms of the SL Mesh uploading process. Not a particularly complex or precise build either.. I was really just trying to show "what mesh could do". In a future video, I hope to do a bit of a simple "build and import" tutorial for how to seriously work with SketchUp with SL Meshes in mind. Music by: Kevin Macleod

Meshes of the Afternoon part1 Resoundtrack of Maya Deren's legendary film. Electronic film score by Dr.dts "Meshes of the Afternoon undoubtedly ranks among the most influential, most remarkable and widely viewed of all avant-garde films. Maya Deren, a filmmaker, theorist, poet, dancer, choreographer, photographer and pioneer in experimental filmmaking in the United States promoted the independent cinema and inspired filmmakers for over fifty years across the globe. My interest was to develop an ***ytical view and approach that could assist me in producing an interesting and, most of all, successful electronic film score, in terms of guiding the viewer throughout the film and creating an appropriate atmosphere for Derens fragile and tenuously interconnected mesh of actual and perceived reality".

Maya Deren - Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) is a short experimental film directed by wife and husband team, Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid. The film's narrative is circular, and repeats a number of psychologically symbolic images, including a flower on a long driveway, a key falling, a door unlocked, a knife in a loaf of bread, a mysterious Grim Reaper--like cloaked figure with a mirror for a face, a phone off the hook and an ocean. Through creative editing, distinct camera angles, and slow motion, the surrealist film depicts a world in which it is more and more difficult to catch reality.

Second Life Mesh from SketchUp Notes: First you need the mesh beta viewer obviously. Get it here (under the heading "Second Life Project Viewers"): Linden Lab apparently thought it wasn't worth mentioning that meshes only work in specific MESH ZONES. When you first rez in the beta (ADITI) grid, chances are you will not be in one of these zones! You will have no "Meshes" folder and if you upload a mesh it will not show up in your inventory! No problem, hit Ctrl+M for the map, type "Mesh" in the search box. A bunch of regions should come up, ie "Mesh Sandbox 1", "Mesh City" etc. secondlife://Aditi/secondlife/Mesh Sandbox 14/128/128/23 Teleport to one of them (teleporting elsewhere will most likely result in your viewer crashing). Before progressing further you should probably check out the mesh wiki: It's pretty ***ing useless, but better than nothing. About this video: I use FRAPS and Windows 7, and apparently FRAPS and Windows 7 don't play very well together. Hence in the first segment of the video and later, there are no dialog boxes or toolbars. Since that's the case, I'll provide the steps I took below: 1. If you're using Google SketchUp it's very easy. Go to the file menu, choose export - 3D model. Save as file type COLLADA (.dae) and you're done, it really is that easy. 2. From within the mesh viewer go to build - upload - Model. Select the file you exported from SketchUp, it should pop up in a preview window, click the upload button. (if your viewer crashes at ...

A Multiscale Approach to Mesh-based Surface Tension Flows SIGGRAPH 2010 paper: A Multiscale Approach to Mesh-based Surface Tension Flows Nils Thürey, Chris Wojtan, Markus Gross, and Greg Turk Abstract: We present an approach to simulate flows driven by surface tension based on triangle meshes. Our method consists of two simulation layers: the first layer is an Eulerian method for simulating surface tension forces that is free from typical strict time step constraints. The second simulation layer is a Lagrangian finite element method that simulates sub-grid scale wave details on the fluid surface. The surface wave simulation employs an unconditionally stable, symplectic time integration method that allows for a high propagation speed due to strong surface tension. Our approach can naturally separate the grid- and sub-grid scales based on a volume-preserving mean curvature flow. As our model for the sub-grid dynamics enforces a local conservation of mass, it leads to realistic pinch off and merging effects. In addition to this method for simulating dynamic surface tension effects, we also present an efficient non-oscillatory approximation for capturing damped surface tension behavior. These approaches allow us to efficiently simulate complex phenomena associated with strong surface tension, such as Rayleigh-Plateau instabilities and crown splashes, in a short amount of time.

Fast GPU Ray Tracing of Dynamic Meshes using Geometry Images Using the GPU to accelerate ray tracing may seem like a natural choice due to the highly parallel nature of the problem. However, determining the most versatile GPU data structure for scene storage and traversal is a challenge. In this paper, we introduce a new method for quick intersection of triangular meshes on the GPU. The method uses a threaded bounding volume hierarchy built from a geometry image, which can be efficiently traversed and constructed entirely on the GPU. This acceleration scheme is highly competitive with other GPU ray tracing methods, while allowing for both dynamic geometry and an efficient level of detail scheme at no extra cost. This video was rendered using GeForce 7800-era GPUs. Credits: Nathan A. Carr, Jared Hoberock, Keenan Crane, and John C. Hart
