Computation of the metric tensor of the final object The initial metric tensor is written: Ginit = Einit ⊗ t Einit The new E final vectors represent the vectors of the final object. 27 We deduce the expression of the final tensor from the equation (Eq1) via the tensor product G final = E final ⊗ t E final i.e. by substituting the value of E final G final = ( Einit + ∆Einit ) ⊗ then by developing the equation t ( Einit + ∆Einit ) G final = ( Einit + Ω ⋅ Einit ) ⊗ t ( Einit + Ω ⋅ Einit ) t i.e. by expressing the unit matrix of dimension n as I n : G final = ( I n + Ω ) ⋅ ( Einit ⊗ t Einit ) ⋅ ( In + Ω) Eq2 Finally G final = ( I n + Ω ) ⋅ Ginit ⋅ t ( In + Ω) This is the basic formula for the dimensional variations of a geometric object. This tensor equation mathematically defines a differentiable parametric manifold, the ωik parameters of which are real numbers. In this way, a topological connection is made between 3 models: the Ginit nominal model, the Ω perturbation model and the final specified model, G final . NB. The factor ( I n + Ω ) demonstrates that a Ω perturbation has definitely been added to unit I n since, for a nil Ω perturbation, we find G final = Ginit 3.2...
