    • Numerical and Geometric Optimizations for Surface and Tolerance Modeling 

      Xu, Songgang (2015-09-16)
      Optimization techniques are widely used in many research and engineering areas. This dissertation presents numerical and geometric optimization methods for solving geometric and solid modeling problems. Geometric optimization ...
    • Quad Dominant 2-Manifold Mesh Modeling 

      Gonen, Mehmet Ozgur (2017-05-10)
      In this dissertation, I present a modeling framework that provides modeling of 2D smooth meshes in arbitrary topology without any need for subdivision. In the framework, each edge of a quad face is represented by a smooth ...
    • Scales and Scale-like Structures 

      Landreneau, Eric Benjamin (2011-08-08)
      Scales are a visually striking feature that grows on many animals. These small, rigid plates embedded in the skin form an integral part of our description of fish and reptiles, some plants, and many extinct animals. Scales ...
    • Wire and column modeling 

      Mandal, Esan (Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
      The goal of this thesis is to introduce new methods to create intricate perforated shapes in a computing environment. Modeling shapes with a large number of holes and handles, while requiring minimal human interaction, is ...
