Conceptual and preliminary aircraft design codes have different geometry requirements.
Conceptual design codes use component based models, while preliminary design codes
require a more complete and integrated geometry. An automatic procedure to convert
between the two types of models would prevent geometry inconsistencies and speed up
the design process. This thesis describes some of the concepts and algorithms necessary
to develop such a procedure. Specifically, the theory and development of C2 continuous
fillets between aircraft components is discussed. B-spline surface generation from
conceptual geometry data and the relimiting of e surfaces is also presented.
