Recommendations for ship hull surface representation
MetadataShow full item record
This report gives the results of a study of current and proposed schemes for mathematical representation of ship hulls. It is concluded that a surface definition scheme is necessary and several proposed schemes are reviewed. The use of B-spline surfaces is recommended, along with the use of interactive graphics equipment to define and fair the hull surface.
