Abstract : In this paper, we first propose a strategy to parallelise the simulation of deformable objects based on particle decomposition. We apply this strategy to cloth simulation and we describe the implementation of SAPPE, our parallel cloth simulation, using the Athapascan parallel programming language. We present experiments with about half a million particles on a cluster of PCs showing good speedups. Then we combine this parallel simulation with the Net Juggler multi-display visualisation system.
