Paper Abstract

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