A class of quasi-quintic trigonometric Bézier curve with two shape parameters

Uzma Bashira,*, Muhammad Abbasa, Mohd Nain Hj Awangb, Jamaludin Md. Alia

ABSTRACT:     In this paper, a class of quasi-quintic trigonometric Bézier curve with two shape parameters, based on newly constructed trigonometric basis functions, is presented. The new basis functions share the properties with Bernstein basis functions, so the generated curves inherit many properties of traditional Bézier curves. The presence of shape parameters provides a local control on the shape of the curve which enables the designer to control the curve more than the ordinary Bézier curve.
