Shape Morphing of Complex Geometries Using Partial Differential Equations
— An alternative technique for shape morphing using a surface generating method using partial differential equations is outlined throughout this work. The boundaryvalue nature that is inherent to this surface generation technique together with its mathematical properties are hereby exploited for creating intermediate shapes between an initial shape and a final one. Four alternative shape morphing techniques are proposed here. The first one is based on the use of a linear combination of the boundary conditions associated with the initial and final surfaces, the second one consists of varying the Fourier mode for which the PDE is solved whilst the third results from a combination of the first two. The fourth of these alternatives is based on the manipulation of the spine of the surfaces, which is computed as a by-product of the solution. Results of morphing sequences between two topologically nonequivalent surfaces are presented. Thus, it is shown that the PDE based approach for mo...
