An Integrated Face, Tongue and Jaw Model

This model integrates FEM-based models of the face and tongue with rigid body representations of the skull, jaw and hyoid bones. Muscle activation is implemented as a combination of anisotropic muscle materials within the FEM models and line-based muscles to connect the rigid bodies. Full details are given here:
