0026308: Segmentation fault in BSplCLib::LocateParameter
I am solving differential equations on Geom_Surfaces made out of TopoDS_Faces. The solver may perform computations on the surface at coordinates that are far outside the surface boundary. As the solution converges, the evaluations happen closer to the actual surface and finally they are withing the surface boundary. It is therefore great for me, that the methods D0, D1 and D2 of Geom_Surface may be used with arbitrary parameters, not only with parameters within certain bounds.

But when using extreme u and v parameters passed to D0 or D2, severe errors may happen. In the method BSplCLib::LocateParameter (from line 220 to 283 in the file BSplCLib.cxx of my community edition version) the boundaries of the array "knots" are exceeded in the line 278:

K2 = knots[KnotIndex + 1];

On Windows I have sporadic crashes. On Linux when using Valgrind, it displays an invalid read of size 8 in this line. When I debug this line, I find situations where KnotIndex + 1 is 13, but Last is 12 and Last1 is 11. Therefore I have concluded that the array boundaries are exceeded.

If my presumption was right, an easy solution could be to throw a Standard_OutOfRange failure in such a case. Then the caller could react. This happens to me only when the u and v parameters have extremely large absolute values. Therefore throwing a failure would already help to recognize such cases. Only crashes are extremely bad for me!

lead to the described Valgrind error and debugging situation as described above on my Linux 32 machine. The crashes on Windows 64 are sporadic, therefore I cannot give definite information about that, but when a crash appeared it was close to such a call to D0 with extreme u and v values.

    0026308: Segmentation fault in BSplCLib::LocateParameter
    Detection of "jumping" knot value has been improved.
2015-07-09 14:41   
Dear BenjaminBihler,

First of all, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that according to the spline theory, every B-spline curve/surface is defined ONLY in the range set by its knot sequence t. It associated with the formula for computing B-spline basis ( [^]):

B[i,1] (x) = (t[i] <= x) && (x < t[i+1]) ? 1 : 0

Consequently, if the parameter is outside the curve/surface boundaries then all bases are equal to zero. Therefore, curve/surface value IS EQUAL TO ZERO, too.
Nevertheless, there is a possibility to expand B-spline curve/surface. If you are interested in this question, you will be able to read, [^] page 114. Prepared code (for FORTRAN compiler) you can find here: [^]

However, it is a bad idea to compute value for outside parameter, especially if its value is too far from domain boundary. E.g. value of attached by you surface has coordinates ~ 1.0e+207. This is a bad number because you will not been able to compute even its square (e.g. in order to find the distance from this point to origin). This fact you must check in your code.

Dear Mikhail,

Please review CR26308 branch.

Dear nbv,

thank you very much for your answer. You are totally right that very large doubles cannot lead to reasonable results.

I have implemented a pre-check that will prevent evaluation, if any of the coordinates is larger than 1.0e10. But it might still be desireable to do computations with quite large numbers (as explained in the bug report). Therefore I am happy that you have cared for the crash.

Thank you,

This is an IMPROVEMENT because on MASTER we have two differences with reference data. On CR26308, one difference has been vanished.

  sat doc_6 A5
Current state (on CR26308) is as same as before fixing bug 0024682. I think, it is valid result.

The shape is a priory BAD because it contains an edge with following 2D-curve (bent is evidend):

Dear testers.

Please increase relative error for area computing to 10% in emesh bugs bug26326_2 test case. After that the test will be OK.
