Modeling of deformation-induced surface details (wrinkles, folds, buckles, etc.) serves two main purposes – firstly, to enhance the visual realism of simulated objects; secondly, to have a measure of mechanical stresses applied to the object. This talk will introduce an approach to represent such details as a static wave over the surface of a simulated object. A short overview  of related work will be given, as well as a description of the underlying physical model. The newly  developed method will be introduced, followed by demonstrations of up-to-date results, and  discussion about further steps.
