BRL-CAD Tutorial Series: Volume IV – Converting Geometry Between BRL-CAD and Other Formats

  title={BRL-CAD Tutorial Series: Volume IV – Converting Geometry Between BRL-CAD and Other Formats},
  author={John Robert Beveridge Anderson and Eric W. Edwards},
Abstract : Since 1979, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory has been developing and distributing the BRL-CAD constructive solid geometry (CSG) modeling package for a wide range of military and industrial applications. The package includes a large collection of tools and utilities, including an interactive three-dimensional geometry editor, raytracing and generic framebuffer libraries, network-distributed image-processing and signal-processing capabilities, and an embedded scripting language. As…

The Target Modeling and The Shot Line Analysis System to Assess Vulnerability of the Ground Combat Vehicle

Received 17 September 2014; received in revised form 20 July 2015; accepted 28 July 2015ABSTRACTVulnerability assessment is a process to calculate the damage degree of a combat vehicle whenthe combat

Introducing a user-friendly MATLAB-based application interface software (AIS) for DPSM modeling: applied to ultrasonic problems

It is explained here how to create computer programs, to use high level functions and to have a team's common strategy to achieve an innovative concept of software development, called AIS (Application Interface Software).

The vulnerability assessment of ground combat vehicles using target functional modeling and FTA

In developing a ground combat vehicle (GCV), four major performance functions of GCV including firepower, mobility, vulnerability, and operability should be carefully designed and tested using

Analysis of Aircraft Survivability Against Fragmenting Warhead Threat

The article presents the methodology of the aircraft survivability analysis considering vulnerability of the aircraft against fragmenting warhead threat. The initial step of the survivability

The Missions & Means Framework ( MMF ) Ontology : Matching Military Assets to Mission Objectives

A singular integrating MMF ontology formalism has significant ramifications across a broad group of research, requirements, test, training, and analytic activities all of which are identically mirrored in this single conceptual model.

The missions and means framework as an ontology

The MMF was not conceived as an ontology, but over the past decade some workers, particularly in the field of communication, have labelled the MMF as such and this connection will be described and discussed.

Estimation of damage probability of combat vehicle components based on modeling and simulation

The shot line analysis for the ricochet and deflection is conducted to enhance the accuracy of the vulnerability assessment of GCV (ground combat vehicles) survivability.
