Paper Abstract

A method has been developed to least-mean square fit Zernike polynomials to surface deformations along the component centerline or lurface normal during finite element structural analysis. This procedure uses a preprocessor to MSC/NASTRAN and allows the polynomial fit to be calculated during dynamic response as well as static loading.
