Abstract

Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) are very powerful modeling tools for geometric design due to several reasons including fast and numerically stable algorithms and unified mathematical basis for representing complex objects [1]. Although target modeling is easy with NURBS, applying some numerical tools directly on NURBS is not so straightforward. Since the surface point function and derivative computation is simpler for rational Bezier surfaces (RBS), NURBS surfaces are converted to RBS by Cox-de Boor Algorithm for numerical implementations [2]. Therefore, solving a problem for RBS corresponds to solving it for NURBS surfaces. Indeed, in this paper, RBS are used for surface modeling and radar cross section (RCS) computations.
