This paper provides implementation details of the algorithm proposed in Schvartzman and Otaduy [2014] to simulate brittle fracture. We cast brittle fracture as the computation of a high-dimensional centroidal Voronoi diagram (CVD), where the distribution of fracture fragments is guided by the deformation field of the fractured object. We accelerate the fracture animation process with example-based learning of the fracture degree and a highly parallel tessellation algorithm.
