Thon and Ghazanfarpour [33] used a hybrid approach where the spectrum synthesized using a spectral approach was used to control the trochoids. This was only applicable in the calm sea case.
[Y.sub.Fa] and [Y.sub.S] factors depend on tooth thickness at critical section, the distance ([h.sub.Fa]) from critical section to intersection of the tooth centerline and the line of action for load at tip of tooth, and the curvature radius ([r.sub.cs]) of the root trochoid whereas [Y.sub.[epsilon]] only is related with contact ratio [[epsilon].sub.[alpha]].

FeatureCAM 2005 delivers the Curly Corner Toolpath, which allows high speeds to be maintained with a more consistent cutter load using a trochoid path through slots and in tight corners.

Unlike "high speed look ahead" software that alters the machine tools feedrate relative to contour complexity and cutter radius along a path, trochoid converts all sharp and intricate corners to an orbital radius larger than the cutter and maintains a fixed feedrate.
Enshu will also demonstrate two emerging technologies - machining in a nitrogen rich environment to prevent chip/tool oxidation, and Trochoid path machining, a computer generated toolpath geometry that promises far greater metal removal rates.
It also forms trochoids diartrosis with the radius in canine and feline that allows supination and pronation (Dyce et al.), which is an important characteristic in primates, since it must allow different positions of the hands to move in the branches of trees or to allow manipulation in humans (Ankel-Simons, 2007).
