WSPC - GEOMETR THEO CONJGTE TOOTH SURF

GEOMETRIC THEORY OF CONJUGATE TOOTH SURFACES, A

Organization: WSPC
Publication Date: 14 May 1992
Status: active
Page Count: 204
scope:

This English translation, with revisions, of the well-known Chinese edition presents systematically the geometric theory of conjugate tooth surfaces in a more or less rigorous form. The concepts of the two kinds of limit points and limit curves are explained in some detail and a general formula for induced normal curvature is derived, of which the formula of Euler-Savary appears as a direct consequence. The idea of relative differentiation, initiated by Zhida Yan, simplifies the presentation considerably. The phenomenon of secondary contact, closely related to the limit curve of the second kind, is treated in full and its applications to direct and indirect generation are explained; concrete formulas for secondary plane envelope are derived.
