Digital modeling of the new gear is carried out by two means: conventional methods on a feature-based 3-dimensioanl CAD and a direct generation of surface composed of coordinates of points on the tooth surface. In order to obtain required accuracy of the models, artificial techniques are required in some cases on mid-range 3D CAD. The accuracy of direct digital model is affected by the way to segment a quadrangular patch into two triangular patches arising from its double curved surface in special of the tooth face with convex tooth-trace..

8. Kazuki TAKENOUCHI, EVALUATION OF A PROFILE PARAMETER OF COW CARRIAGE WHEEL IN AN OLD JAPANESE PICTURE SCROLL BY HYPERELLIPSE FITTING, The 10th Asian Forum on Graphic Science, 2015.08, This study is to evaluate a characteristic value of a wheel profile of Japanese cow carriage painted in an old Japanese picture scroll “Heiji Monogatari Ekotoba”, profile that relates to how the shape of circle was recognized and represented on a two-dimensional plane. The characteristic values of the contour of each wheel in the picture are extracted as the power exponent n by fitting the contours to superellipse. The extraction of the shape parameter was carried out by use of the generalized reduced gradient method, which enabled to analyze wheels having a contour partly hidden or clipped by an edge of paper. The magnitude of the power exponent is over 2 of an exact ellipse, indicating wheels are drawn in a bellied shape compared to an exact ellipse, and the shape was characterized by the average value of n=2.2 of hyperellipse..
