Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Motivated by the needs of mould and die manufacturers, this paper presents a novel approach to recognizing shape features on geometric models composed of both simple and complex ruled surfaces. The algorithm described uses a network of adjacent 2D-laminae (i.e., bounded surfaces) derived from a component's CAD model to both locate and create generic protrusion and depression feature volumes. The approach also enables the automatic generation of alternative feature descriptions and requires no predefined feature libraries
