Abstract
A novel approach to geometric parameterization through "morphing" an input geometry is proposed. This is built on a successful geometry parameterization approach used in previous MDO projects. This provides a simple, robust, and efficient technique for generating updated geometry with updated parameters. A gui-based application allowing the user to define the desired parameters, visualize the perturbations in the model, and check the quality and correctness of the resulting geometry will be developed. The alogrithms proposed are applicable to geometry models as well as to analysis models.
