Paper Abstract

Zernike polynomials are an orthogonal set over a unit circle and are often used to represent surface distortions from FEA analyses. There are several reasons why these coefficients may lose their orthogonality in an FEA analysis. The effects, their importance, and techniques for identifying and improving orthogonality are discussed. Alternative representations are presented.
