By way of 1805 the 44-gun frigate used to be most likely seen as a failed test when the 38-gun frigate used to be considered because the vessel of the long run. Ten years later each military was once construction 44-gun frigates and at the present time it really is seen because the image of the Napoleonic-era cruiser. This amazing transformation resulted from the functionality of 3 ships – the structure, usa, and President – 44-gun frigates outfitted for the USA military among 1794 and 1799. Their victories within the naval struggle of 1812, in addition to their functionality opposed to the Barbary Pirates, stuck the mind's eye of the area – and spurred all navies into re-examining the category.

Example text

Drilling holes or milling plane cuts or recesses, is an advantage. CSG representations are compact and inherently valid. However, evaluation of a CSG model to produce surface data for display or NC machining requires complex operations that are similar to constructing a B-rep solid model. 2 Boundary Representation (B-rep) Solids. In a boundary representation of a solid, the solid is defined by describing all of its bounding surfaces (faces). The faces are typically trimmed portions of planes, or trimmed parametric or implicit surfaces.

In this case, the composite surface is required to be topologically closed. However, there are definite applications Fig. 22 A trimmed surface is the portion of a base surface bounded by trimming curves. In this case, the base surface for the transom is an inclined circular cylinder. 26 Fig. 23 THE PRINCIPLES OF NAVAL ARCHITECTURE SERIES A ship hull molded form defined as a composite surface made from five patches. A, B, and C are ruled surfaces; D and E are trimmed surfaces made from B-spline lofted base surfaces, whose outlines are dashed.

Fig. 26 A bow thruster tunnel defined by use of a projected snake. The basis curve is a circle in the centerplane; it is projected transversely onto the hull surface, making a projected snake. The curve and snake are connected with a ruled surface for the tunnel wall. 30 THE PRINCIPLES OF NAVAL ARCHITECTURE SERIES Curves of intersection arising from the intersections between two surfaces can be recognized as snakes residing on both of the surfaces. 15. 2 Applications of Curves on Surfaces. , a guard, strake, or bilge keel • As alignment marks to be carried through a plate expansion process.
