Distortion Measures for Quadrilaterals with Curved Boundaries

Distortion Measures for Quadrilaterals with Curved Boundaries

Due to the evolving nature of the engineering analysis and simulation market this publication no longer represents current best practice and has been archived. The document may be of historical interest and is therefore still available for purchase

This book demonstrates how the shape or distortion parameters of an eight-mode quadrilateral with curved boundaries can be expressed in terms of coefficients of the element's shape polynomials

A review of other parameters is also given.
