We present a novel method named truncated hierarchical unstructured splines (THU-splines) that supports both local h-refinement and unstructured quadrilateral meshes. In a THU-spline construction, an unstructured quadrilateral mesh is taken as the input control mesh, where the degenerated-patch method [18] is adopted in irregular regions to defineC1-continuous bicubic splines, whereas regular regions only involve C2 B-splines. Irregular regions are then smoothly joined with regular regions… Expand

Blended B-spline construction on unstructured quadrilateral and hexahedral meshes with optimal convergence rates in isogeometric analysis
Abstract We present a novel blended B-spline method to construct bicubic/tricubic splines over unstructured quadrilateral and hexahedral meshes for isogeometric analysis. C 1 and (truncated) C 2Expand
THB-splines: The truncated basis for hierarchical splines
It is shown that the construction of classical hierarchical B-splines can be suitably modified in order to define locally supported basis functions that form a partition of unity by reducing the support of basis functions defined on coarse grids, according to finer levels in the hierarchy of splines.

T-splines and T-NURCCs
A generalization of non-uniform B-spline surfaces called T-splines, which are C2 (in the absence of multiple knots), and T-NURCCs (Non-Uniform Rational Catmull-Clark Surfaces with T-junctions) are a superset of both T- Splines and Catm Mull-Clark surfaces, which can handle any NURBS or CatmULL-Clark model as special cases.

Hierarchical B-spline refinement
This work presents a method of localizing the effect of refinement through the use of overlays, which are hierarchically controlled subdivisions, and introduces two editing techniques that are effective when using overlays. Expand

Abstract The concept of isogeometric analysis is proposed. Basis functions generated from NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines) are employed to construct an exact geometric model. For purposes ofExpand
