This paper outlines a framework for the modelling of slender rod-like biological tissue structures in both global and local scales. Volumetric discretization of a rod-like structure is expensive in computation and therefore is not ideal for applications where real-time performance is essential. In our approach, the Cosserat rod model is introduced to capture the global shape changes, which models the structure as a one-dimensional entity, while the local deformation is handled separately. In this way a good balance in accuracy and efficiency is achieved. These advantages make our method appropriate for the modelling of soft tissues for medical training applications.
