Rapid Generation of C 2 Continuous Blending Surfaces [chapter]

Jian J. Zhang, Lihua You
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Most surface-blending methods are able to blend surfaces with tangent continuity.  ...  However, curvature continuity has become increasingly important in geometric modelling and its applications, such as computer animation, computer-aided design and virtual reality.  ...  This method was first proposed by Bloor and Wilson [5] . In the reported literature, however, the PDE based approach has only been used to construct a C 1 continuous blending surface.  ...

Y.L. Srinivas, Debasish Dutta
1994 Computer-Aided Design  
In the past, cyclide surfaces have been used effectively for the variable radius blending of natural quadric intersections.  ...  However, attempts to use cyclides for constructing realistic, freeform composite surfaces met with rather limited success.  ...  In fact, *A double-cyclide blend is a blending technique in which two pieces from (different) cyclides, joined in a tangent-continuous manner, are used to produce a smooth blending surface.  ...

Curvature continuous blend surfaces [chapter]

Günther Greiner, Hans-Peter Seidel
1993 Modeling in Computer Graphics  
We describe a method to generate blend surfaces which t with continuous curvature to the primary surfaces.  ...  Among all the bicubic tensor splines which give a curvature continuous blend surface, the one is chosen which minimizes a bilinear functional.  ...  In this case, one can only prescribe the boundary values not the normal or even the curvature. Thus, generating blend surfaces by this method will only yield continuous surfaces.  ...
