Abstract : In isogeometric analysis framework, computational domain is exactly described using the same representation as that employed in the CAD process. For a CAD object, we can construct various computational domain with same shape but with different parameterization. One basic requirement is that the resulting parameterization should have no self-intersections. In this paper, a linear and easy-to-check sufficient condition for injectivity of trivariate B-spline parameterization is proposed. By an example of 3D thermal conduction problem, we show that different parameterization of computational domain has different impact on the simulation result and efficiency in isogeometric analysis. For problems with exact solutions, we propose a shape optimization method to obtain optimal parameterization of computational domain. The proposed injective condition is used to check the injectivity of initial trivariate B-spline parameterization constructed by discrete Coons volume method, which is the generalization of discrete Coons patch method. Several examples and comparisons are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed method. Compared with the initial parameterization during refinement, the optimal parameterization can achieve the same accuracy but with less degrees of freedom.
