Dear All,
I am having problems with some calculations and I am asking for help or

I am integrating a piecewise defined function. The function is non zero
for some periodic intervals.
When nonzero the function has the form f[x_]:=c * Sqrt[ 1-( (x-a)/b )^2*
UnitStep[1-( (x-a)/b )^2] ]
with a, b, c constants
I want to plot g[y]
I get a lot of messages that are telling  :"Nintegrate failed to
converge to prescribed accuracy"
" Integration converging too slowly"   etc.

Does anybody know a fix?

Thanks Vio
