Hello.
Does anybody use Mathematica in order to draw half planes or/and a
half spaces?
I mean from the applied mathematics point of view! Like those
encountered in the
mathematical theory of elasticity/piezoelectrecity etc.
For example in Boussinesq / Cerruti problem (3D) and their
2D counterpart Flamant problem.
Let me be more specific...
Suppose I have the following drawing
(note that in another post I ask how it is possible to produce
the same output more directly!)
In[2611]:=
surf = Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity}, ParametricPlot[{13*Cos[u],
4*Sin[u]}, {u, 0, 2*Pi}, PlotStyle -> Thickness[0.008],
PlotPoints -> 100]];
surfgray = surf /. Line[x_] :> {GrayLevel[0.95], Polygon[x]};
halfspa = Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity},
ParametricPlot[13*{Cos[u], Sin[u]}, {u, Pi, 2*Pi}, PlotStyle ->
Thickness[0.008],
PlotPoints -> 100]];
halfspagr = halfspa /. Line[x_] :> {GrayLevel[0.95], Polygon[x]};
Show[surfgray, halfspagr, surf, halfspa, Axes -> False];
I would like the obtained half space to be smooth but not SO smooth as
a sphere. In other words I am looking in a way deform halfspa curve in
a
way that it will not lost its smoothness (that is continuoous
derivatives everywhere!)
but it will not have everywhere the same radious.
Thanks a lot for any ideas!
Dimitris
