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.

This is the wurface material for? Thus, the boundary matrix for the F-surface patch becomes Figure 3. The attributes to be stored would be only four corner points because the surface represented by Equation 4 can be reconstructed from these four corner points.
Define 4 corner points in 3D space. Hermite Bicubic Surface Because the blending functions are linear, the bilinear surface tends to be flat.
Construct a sphere to represent the earth. Describe how you can determine the shortest distance between, say, San Francisco and Taipei.
Hermite Bicubic Surface is an extension of Hermite cubic spline. 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.

Estimate the tangent vectors using the 4 corner points. 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.
It is used to calculate cutter offsets for three-dimensional NC programming to machine surfaces, volume calculations, and shading of a surface model. 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 principle curvatures are the roots of the following equation: Thus, the boundary matrix for the F-surface patch becomes. Do the results make sense to you? For a 2-D parametric curvenote thatandEquation 21 can be transformed into. 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.
This special surface is useful in design and machining applications. Equation 11 can be further expressed as. The mean curvature is defined as.
The paths that have minimum lengths are analogous to a straight line connecting two points in euclidean space and are known as geodesics. Similarly, P uv is obtained from P 0 v and P 1 v as.
Use proper mesh and view to display the surface. Finally, write down the surface equations of your F-surface patch and aurface a simple Matlab program to draw the F-surface. Write down the bilinear surface equation using Equation 4. Bicubic surfaces provide designers with better surface design tools when designing surfaces.
We assume that this point is obtained by dividing the line segment between P 0 v and P 1 v in the ratio u: The surface normal at a point is a vector which is perpendicular to both tangent vectors at the point Figure 2 ; that is.
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.
Draw the shortest path on the sphere. A parametric surface patch with its boundary conditions. The point P uv defined in this way will traverse the entire surface consistently with the increment of the parameter values u and v from 0 to 1.
Because the blending functions are linear, the bilinear surface tends to be flat.
This is useful if tool paths are to be generated to mill the surface. The tangent vectors at the corner points can be approximated in terms of the corner positions using the direction and the length of chord lines joining the corner points.

For a 2-D parametric curve represented in terms of hremite arc length s. And the unit normal vector is given by. 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.
We also assume that Surfaec 0 v and P 1 v are the internal division points of the line segments P 00 P 01 and P 10 P 11 respectively, in the ratio v: 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.
