Abstract:

The design of surfaces of vehicles is a lengthy and tedious process. Advances in interactive computer graphics and mathematical representation of curves and surfaces have made interactive graphics an attractive medium for design. The Surface Modeling and Analysis SMA program provides a set of computer subroutines for 1 calculating descriptive information about a surface and 2 manipulating data by providing the interface between the programmer and the data structure. These routines are based upon parametric cubics and the Coons Patch technique. A brief description of the representation is included. The SMA subroutine package was implemented on the CDC 6700 computer.
