dc.description.abstractThis paper presents a surface generation tool designed for the construction of aircraft geometry. The software generates complex geometries which can be crafted or modified by the user in real time. The surface generation is based on partial differential equations (PDEs). The PDE method can produce different configurations of aircraft shapes interactively. Each surface is generated by a number of curves representing the character lines of a given part of the aircraft shape that can be manipulated in real time. Different surfaces then blend to create the full shape of the airplane. An important function of the proposed tool is its ability to change the aircraft shape through the adjustments of parameters associated with the initial curves. The user can apply linear transformations to the curves generating the airplane through simple input from the computer keyboard and the mouse. The updated curves can then be used to generate the surface leading to different configurations of a given airplane shape. The work presents detailed descriptions on the PDE method, parametric design and manipulation of aircrafts along with graphical demonstrations of its abilities and a series of examples to illustrate the capacity of the methodology implemented.
