This tool tries to unify faces and edges of the shape which lie on the same geometry. Faces/edges are considering as 'samedomain' if a group of neighbouring faces/edges are lying on coincident surfaces/curves. In this case these faces/edges can be unified into one face/edge. ShapeUpgrade_UnifySameDomain is initialized by a shape and the next optional parameters: UnifyFaces  tries to unify all possible faces UnifyEdges  tries to unify all possible edges ConcatBSplines  if this flag is set to true then all neighbouring edges, which lay on BSpline or Bezier curves with C1 continuity on their common vertices, will be merged into one common edge.

void  AllowInternalEdges (const Standard_Boolean theValue) 
Sets the flag defining whether it is allowed to create internal edges inside merged faces in the case of nonmanifold topology. Without this flag merging through multi connected edge is forbidden. Default value is false. More...  
void  KeepShape (const TopoDS_Shape &theShape) 
Sets the shape for avoid merging of the faces/edges. This shape can be vertex or edge. If the shape is a vertex it forbids merging of connected edges. If the shape is a edge it forbids merging of connected faces. This method can be called several times to keep several shapes. More...

This tool tries to unify faces and edges of the shape which lie on the same geometry. Faces/edges are considering as 'samedomain' if a group of neighbouring faces/edges are lying on coincident surfaces/curves. In this case these faces/edges can be unified into one face/edge. ShapeUpgrade_UnifySameDomain is initialized by a shape and the next optional parameters: UnifyFaces  tries to unify all possible faces UnifyEdges  tries to unify all possible edges ConcatBSplines  if this flag is set to true then all neighbouring edges, which lay on BSpline or Bezier curves with C1 continuity on their common vertices, will be merged into one common edge.
The input shape can be of any type containing faces or edges  compsolid, solid, shell, wire, compound of any kind of shapes. The algorithm preserves the structure of compsolids, solids, shells and wires. E.g., if two shells have a common edge and the faces sharing this edge lie on the same surface the algorithm will not unify these faces, otherwise the structure of shells would be broken. However, if such faces belong to different compounds of faces they will be unified.
The output result of the tool is the unified shape.
All the modifications of initial shape are recorded during unifying. Methods History are intended to:
