see this app); the next challenge is to figure out how an arc placed on each ellipse can be constrained (with proportional points along the ellipses) such that each arc always covers half of the ellipse and one endpoint is on the tangent point of the two smaller ellipses.

Note: the calculated radius in this particular example cannot be accurate because the model is a 2d geometric approximation of the real 3d shape. Accurate calculations are made from the top view model, which is visually more difficult to comprehend. The calculation here still varies accurately as the twist angle is changed and the position is moved up and down the turbine, but it also varies as the rotation is changed (which shouldn't happen).
