ABSTRACT
We recently developed a time-stepping method for simulat-
ing rigid multi-body systems with intermittent contact that is im-
plicit in the geometric information [1]. In this paper, we extend
this formulation to quasi-rigid or locally compliant objects, i.e.,
objects with a rigid core surrounded by a compliant layer, sim-
ilar to Song et al. [2]. The difference in our compliance model
from existing quasi-rigid models is that, based on physical moti-
