This paper investigates several methodologies for simulating soft-body objects using a mass-spring approach. The mechanisms are then expanded to include deformation information that can produce results suitable for use in real-time applications where visual impact rather than accuracy is desired, such as video games. Many methods use complex and esoteric methods to achieve physically accurate simulations; we target the mass-spring model because of its simplicity, using creative modifications for diverse visual outcomes.
