2.089J Computational Geometry


Class Info

Topics in surface modeling: b-splines, non-uniform rational b-splines, physically based deformable surfaces, sweeps and generalized cylinders, offsets, blending and filleting surfaces. Non-linear solvers and intersection problems. Solid modeling: constructive solid geometry, boundary representation, non-manifold and mixed-dimension boundary representation models, octrees. Robustness of geometric computations. Interval methods. Finite and boundary element discretization methods for continuum mechanics problems. Scientific visualization. Variational geometry. Tolerances. Inspection methods. Feature representation and recognition. Shape interrogation for design, analysis, and manufacturing. Involves analytical and programming assignments.

This class has no prerequisites.

2.089J will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by N. M. Patrikalakis and D. C. Gossard.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
