Triangular Bézier surface: From reconstruction to roughness parameter computation

Luca Pagani, Paul Scott

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Texture parameters computation on freeform surfaces is becoming an important topic in surface characterization. Triangular meshes are used to describe a measured freeform surface. This reconstruction method linearly interpolates three points, to better approximate the surface triangular Bézier patches are used. A method to compute areal texture parameters is proposed. Based on numerical experiments the degree of the function approximating the surface and the number of quadrature points required to compute parameters values are investigated.
