Isogeometric Analysis uses NURBS representations of the domain for performing numerical simulations. The first part of this paper presents a variational framework for generating NURBS parameterizations of swept volumes. The class of these volumes covers a number of interesting free-form shapes, such as blades of turbines and propellers, ship hulls or wings(More)
We show how to divide the edge graph of a Voronoi diagram into a tree that corresponds to the medial axis of an (augmented) planar domain. Division into base cases is then possible, which, in the bottom-up phase, can be merged by trivial concatenation. The resulting construction algorithm--similar to Delaunay triangulation methods--is not bisector-based and(More)
Isogeometric Analysis (IGA) was introduced by Hughes et al. in 2005 [1] as a new method to bridge the gap between the geometry description and numerical analysis. Similar to the finite element approach, the IGA concept to solve a partial differential equation leads to a (linear) system of equations. The condition number of the coefficient matrix is a(More)
