Get isocurve along a surface?

Suppose I have a surface, parameterized by variables u,v.  Holding (say) u fixed at some value and varying v gives us a curve on the surface, and vice versa, and I call curves that arise this way isocurves.  What is the corresponding notion in Solid Edge?  What function can I use to take a surface, supply either a u- or a v-value, and get the resulting isocurve, so that I might e.g. calculate its arc length?

Thanks for the reply.  But an isocline curve is a different concept (a more geometric one).  I'm just looking for the simpler concept of the curve obtained by fixing a u- or v-value of a surface parameterization.
