Blending splines are constructions where local geometry is blended together by a blending function to create global geometry. The different basis functions has different properties, which can be suited for different problems. Different basis functions, properties and the implementation of physical properties with a focus towards utilizing parts of blending splines in an isogeometric analysis (IGA) context constitutes the basis for the current study. This paper gives an introduction to a newly started PhD project regarding the use of blending splines in modeling and simulation environments.
