    This paper explores the possibility of employing a surface model for volume
    simulation. The issues are the non-existence of internal volume that causes
    object collapse and the physical properties estimation of the model.
    Therefore, properties distribution scheme based on a mass spring system is
    proposed where values for mass and the inner support spring stiffness at the
    nodes are estimated based on the relationship of the surface nodes to the
    object centre. Local and global volume behaviours are preserved when the
    surface model is simulated under the influence of gravity, deformed by
    external forces and topologically refined. The proposed scheme contributes
    towards the employment of a deformable surface model for soft volume
    simulation with haptic interaction.
