COMMON CURVES USED IN ENGINEERING PRACTICE

In engineering practice we see many objects having curved surfaces or edges. Every curve has a name and property which defines it. Point is the basic identity in a drawing. All curves are obtained by the path traced by a point while moving in a constrained motion. Most commonly used curves in engineering practice are 1.    Conic Sections: – These are the curves obtained on having sections of a right circular cone by a plane from different positions relative to the axis of cone. Circle, Ellipse, Parabola and Hyperbola are the curves defined by conic sections. 2.    Cycloidal Curves :-…
