CurveBend graphical tool for presentation of infinitesimal bending of curves. (English) Zbl 1340.68210
Authors’ abstract: An infinitesimal bending of the curve at $${\mathbb E}^3$$ is considered and the infinitesimal bending field is determined and discussed. CurveBend, tool for graphical presentation of non rigid curves is presented. Influence of infinitesimal bending field on curves is discussed and visualized by the tool.
