The Efficient Parametrization of Aircraft Geometry

NASA Langely Research Center has funded research to investigate the way in which the PDE method can be used to efficiently parametrize aircraft geometry. The types of objects considered have included the a supersonic transport and nacelle/pylon configurations. Software has been developed that allows the interactive manipulation of such geometries by a user sitting at a suitable workstation.
