2D/3D registration is the process of aligning 3D volume data to a 2D image. Typically, during orthopedic trauma surgeries, 3D volume data is acquired prior to the surgery to visualize the extent of the injury and also plan the operation. During the surgery, 2D fluoroscopic images are acquired to visualize the position of surgical instruments and...

Repair was once a common act. With increased product diversity and complexity, a scarcity and obsolescence of spare parts is making repair increasingly difficult and economically unviable. The result is an accelerated turnover of manufactured goods, which are more often replaced than repaired. As products are discarded, embedded materials and...

Spurs-and-grooves (SAG) are a common and impressive characteristic of shallow fore reef areas worldwide. Although the existence and geometrical properties of SAG are well-documented ever since the 50’s, the literature concerning specifically the hydrodynamics around them is sparse. This study provides a characterization of the 3D flow patterns...

This research focuses on a smooth rendering of continuous 2D map based on a smooth 3D vario-scale geographical data structure. A Space Scale Cube (SSC) offers non-redundant geometric data for the different level of details. SSC model represents geographic data as a closed polyhedron, to generate a 2D map; SSC is intersected with the projection...

Parts of the Southwest Palace of Sennacherib (700 BC), which were located in Nineveh (Iraq), are now destroyed by the ongoing conflict in Iraq and Syria. The palace rooms used to be decorated with numerous Assyrian reliefs. Luckily, digital pictures of the site are available thanks to an Italian expedition in 2002. The goal of this research is...
