Fracture shell 'popping' force


Recommended Posts

Hey, all...I'm working on a test in which I want to have fractured shell pieces appear to 'pop' off the underlying surface as though the force came from the surface below.

From my reading, it seems like the two most likely candidates are a field force or a point force. I'm guessing I'd want the force impulse to travel along the average normal of the outer shell piece...?

Anyone done something similar? Am I on the right path with either the field force or the point force?

My searches on this type of effect got a lot of noise...turns out the word 'POP' is pretty common here. Who knew? :)
