"Fundamental" Parameteric Geometry Representations for Aircraft Component Shapes
The mathematical description of a nacelle, body or airfoil having a round nose and pointed aft-end is a continuous but non-analytic function because of the infinite slope at the nose and the corresponding large variations of curvature over the surface. Expand
