Figures

Grahic Jump Location
Non-penetration condition at a point. Planes 1 and 2 are coplanar but are shown as separated for clarity.
Grahic Jump Location
Non-penetration condition along a line. r⃗ is the position vector of an arbitrary point along the contact line between P1 and Q1. Planes 1 and 2 are coplanar but are shown as separated for clarity.
Grahic Jump Location
Non-penetration condition in a polygonal surface. r⃗ is the position vector of an arbitrary point within the polygon bounded by P1,Q1 and R1. Planes 1 and 2 are coplanar but are shown as separated for clarity.
Grahic Jump Location
Plane containing r⃗ also contains the normal vectors to r⃗
Grahic Jump Location
Contact graph for a 4-part assembly. Nodes represent the four parts. Edges represent the contacts. The contact surface that forms the intersection set is shown in each edge.
