Regarding the modeling of the 3D rough fractal surface, we introduce here a bandlimited Weierstrass function of two variables, (1) below, as a straightforward extension of similar Weierstrass functions provided in the past by Jaggard [8] (function of one variable) and by Zaleski [10] (function of two variables).
Therefore, the equation proposed here, which describes the modified two-dimensional bandlimited fractal Weierstrass function for modeling 3D rough fractal surfaces is given by
