GEOMETRIC MODELING ISSUES IN COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN OF MARINE STRUCTURES

This article discusses the application of geometric modeling in computer aided engineering of complex systems such as ships and offshore structures. Modern methods of geometric modeling promise to provide a common framework to conduct design, analysis and simulation, and manufacturing of engineering artifacts in a unified computer environment. Methods of shape representation and interrogation in the computer are identified and their salient features are analyzed to allow understanding of their strengths and limitations in the context of different applications. Issues of data exchange between systems of different inherent capabilities are also discussed. Finally, some other open problems in this field are identified.
