Two families of cubic Hermite curves forming a parametric net are the basis of the bicubic Hermite surface. Learn more about Chapter 7: Bicubic Hermite. Parametric Bicubic Surfaces. ▫ The goal is to go from curves in space to curved surfaces in space. ▫ To do this, we will parameterize a surface. bicubic surfaces. We want to define We want to define smooth surfaces too. Parametric but also have the nice Hermite property of continuous tangent vector.

Write a simple Matlab program to draw the surface. And the unit normal vector is given by. For a 2-D parametric curvenote thatandEquation 21 can be transformed into. Skrface how you can determine the shortest distance between, say, San Francisco and Taipei.

This special surface is useful in design and machining applications.

Similarly, P uv is obtained from P 0 v and P 1 v as. Thus, the boundary matrix for the F-surface patch becomes. Check out the latitudes and longitudes of Taipei, Tokyo, the North Pole, and San Francisco, and mark approximately the positions of the 4 cities on the earth. A bilinear surface is derived by interpolating four data points, using linear equations in the parameters u and v so that the resulting surface has the four points at its corners, denoted P 00P 10P 01and P 11as shown in Figure 1.

This is useful if tool paths are to be generated to mill the surface.

## L11 Hermite Bicubic Surface Patch

Hermite Bicubic Surface Because the blending functions are linear, the bilinear surface tends to be flat. The mean curvature is defined as. It is used to calculate cutter offsets for three-dimensional NC programming to machine surfaces, volume calculations, and shading of a surface model.

The Gaussian curvature at a point on the surface is defined as. Finally, write down the surface equations of your F-surface patch and write a bicybic Matlab program to draw the F-surface.

The principle curvatures are the roots of the following equation: Geodesics In general, two distinct points on a surface can be connected by many different paths, of different lengths, on the surface.

We can verify that the four data points are at the corners of the bilinear surface by substituting the proper combination of 0 and 1 for u and v in Equation 4. The surface normal at a point is a vector which is perpendicular to both tangent vectors at the point Figure 2 ; that is. Substituting Equation 1 and 2 into Equation 3 surfacr the following equation of a bilinear surface: A parametric surface patch with its boundary conditions.

Write down the bilinear surface equation using Equation 4. We also assume that P 0 v and P 1 v are the internal division points of the line segments P 00 P 01 and P 10 P bicuboc respectively, in the ratio v: Construct a sphere to represent the earth. As shown in Figure 2, 16 boundary conditions are required to find the coefficients of the equation.

In general, two distinct points on a surface can be connected by many different paths, of different lengths, on the surface. Based on these assumptions, P 0 v and P 1 v are. Hence, the designer does not have to input tangent vector information and the computations required to calculate the surface parameters are simplified.

They are the 4 corner data points, the 8 tangent vectors at the corner points two at each point in the u and v directionsand the 4 twist vectors at the corner points. The Ferguson surface also called the F-surface patch is a bicubic surface patch with zero twist vectors at the patch cornersas shown in Figure 3. Deriving the equation of a bilinear surface would be equivalent to finding the expression of the coordinates of an arbitrary point corresponding to the parameter values u and v.

Hermite Bicubic Surface is an extension of Hermite cubic spline. This is the course material for? Thus, the boundary matrix for the F-surface patch becomes Figure 3. Bicubic surfaces provide designers with better surface hermkte tools when designing surfaces.

Use proper mesh and view to display the surface.

The normal to a surface is another important analytical property. Principle Curvature The principle curvatures are the roots of the following equation: EFand G are the first fundamental, or metric, coefficients of the surface. Bilinear Surface A bilinear surface is derived by interpolating four data points, using linear equations in the parameters u and v so that the resulting surface has the four points at its corners, denoted P 00P 10P 01and P 11as shown in Figure 1.

The point P uv defined in this way will uermite the entire surface consistently with the increment of the parameter values u and v from 0 to 1.

This material is be used strictly for teaching and learning of this course. Equation 4 also tells us that a bilinear surface is obtained by simply blending the effects of the corner points after they are weighted by the blending functions 1- u 1- vu 1- v1- u vuv.

Use proper mesh and views to display the surface. Draw the shortest path on the sphere. Surface geodesics can, for example, provide optimized motion planning across a curved surface for numerical control machining, robot programming, and winding of coils around a rotor. We call the extreme values the?
