Deconfliction and Surface Generation from Bathymetry Data Using LR B-splines [article]

Vibeke Skytt, Quillon Harpham, Tor Dokken, Heidi E.I. Dahl
2016 arXiv   pre-print
A set of bathymetry point clouds acquired by different measurement techniques at different times, having different accuracy and varying patterns of points, are approximated by an LR B-spline surface. The aim is to represent the sea bottom with good accuracy and at the same time reduce the data size considerably. In this process the point clouds must be cleaned by selecting the "best" points for surface generation. This cleaning process is called deconfliction, and we use a rough approximation

LR B-splines is the selected surface format due to its suitability for adaptive refinement and approximation, and its ability to represent local detail without a global increase in the data size of the surface

Spline Surface Intersections Optimized for GPUs [chapter]

Sverre Briseid, Tor Dokken, Trond Runar Hagen, Jens Olav Nygaard
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A commodity-type graphics card with its graphics processing unit (GPU) is used to detect, compute and visualize the intersection of two spline surfaces, or the self-intersection of a single spline surface. The parallelism of the GPU facilitates fast and efficient subdivision and bounding box testing of smaller spline patches and their corresponding normal subpatches. This subdivision and testing is iterated until a prescribed level of accuracy is reached, after which results are returned to the

Piecewise approximate implicitization: experiments using industrial data [chapter]

Mohamed F. Shalaby, Jan B. Thomassen, Elmar M. Wurm, Tor Dokken, Bert Jüttler
2006 Mathematics and Visualization  
We compare several methods for approximate implicitization by piecewise polynomials which have been developed by the authors, and a linear-algebrabased numerical method for implicitization which is provided as a part of MAPLE. We investigate both quantitative criteria (such as computing time, memory use, and the error of the approximation) and qualitative criteria. As demonstrated by the results, piecewise approximate implicitization is able to handle surfaces arising in industrial

The GPU as a high performance computational resource

Tor Dokken, Trond R. Hagen, Jon M. Hjelmervik
2005 Proceedings of the 21st spring conference on Computer graphics - SCCG '05  
With the introduction in 2003 of standard GPUs with 32 bit floating point numbers and programmable Vertex and Fragment processors, the processing power of the GPU was made available to non-graphics applications. As the GPU is aimed at computer graphics, the concepts in GPU-programming are based on computer graphics terminology, and the strategies for programming have to be based on the architecture of the graphics pipeline.

Locally refined spline surfaces for terrain and sea bed data: tailored approximation, export and analysis tools [article]

Vibeke Skytt, Tor Dokken
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The novel Locally Refined B-spline (LR B-spline) surface format is suited for representing terrain and seabed data in a compact way. It provides an alternative to the well know raster and triangulated surface representations. An LR B-spline surface has an overall smooth behaviour and allows the modelling of local details with only a limited growth in data volume. In regions where many data points belong to the same smooth area LR B-splines allow a very lean representation of the shape by
more » ... adapting the resolution of the spline space to the size and local shape variations of the region. The surfaces generated approximate the smooth component of a cloud of data points within user specified tolerances. The method can be modified to improve the accuracy in particular domains and selected data points. The resulting surfaces are well suited for analysis and computing secondary information such as contour curves and minimum and maximum points. The surfaces can be translated into a raster or a tessellated surface of desired quality or exported as collections of tensor product spline surfaces. Data transfer can also be performed using Part 42 of ISO 10303 (the STEP standard) where LR B-splines were published in 2018.

Trivariate spline representations for computer aided design and additive manufacturing

Tor Dokken, Vibeke Skytt, Oliver Barrowclough
2018 Computers and Mathematics with Applications  
Digital representations targeting design and simulation for Additive Manufacturing (AM) are addressed from the perspective of Computer Aided Geometric Design. We discuss the feasibility for multi-material AM for B-rep based CAD, STL, sculptured triangles as well as trimmed and block-structured trivariate locally refined spline representations. The trivariate spline representations support Isogeometric Analysis (IGA), and topology structures supporting these for CAD, IGA and AM are outlined. The

An example from the EC H2020 Factories of the Future Research and Innovation Actions CAxMan illustrates both trimmed and block-structured spline representations for IGA and AM.
