A geometrical model generator for quasi-axisymmetric fruit
Keywords: elliptic Fourier descriptors, shape description, shape generation, biological variability
AbstractA geometrical model generator for fruit is presented. The generator uses X-ray tomography images of quasi-axisymmetric fruit as input, describes the shape of the fruit with elliptical Fourier descriptors, and uses statistical analysis to randomly generate new representative fruit shapes from this dataset, which can be directly used as CAD models for CFD or FEM analysis.
