Approximate continuity in geomeric modeling

2016/17-2019/20 • $88,000 • PI
Scientific and engineering applications often require an existing object be reproduced as a patchwise surface of designated continuity. Current solutions fail to meet the smoothness criteria of many industrial and scientific applications. The goal of my research is to find acceptable surface...

Development of cloud-based collaborative BIM modelling software

2017/18-2018/19 • $200,000 • PI,CO
Construction practitioners, researchers, and other stakeholders of construction in Canada are becoming increasingly cognizant of the need for a transformation in home building methods. The automotive sector has enjoyed the benefits of automated design and manufacturing for years, and now the...

Surfaces, geometry and 3D finite element meshes

2014/15 • $34,500 • PI
This research will investigate issues with boundary representations, 2D surface representations and 3D tetrahedral meshes that represents the inside of the surface, as well as geometry issues related to all three representations. The primary goal will be to perform constructive solid geometry...

Design intent in surface modeling

2010/11-2013/14 • $120,000 • PI
In a parametric solid modeling package such as SolidWorks, the idea of design intent is that the design should reflect the user's intent. Part of this is a requirement on the design process. As a simple example, if the desired object has mirror symmetry such as a car body, the user should design...
