In this paper, we consider the problem of how to compute the Frenet apparatus of the non-transversal intersection curves (hyper-curves) of three hypersurfaces (given by their implicit-implicit-parametric and implicit-parametric-parametric equations) in Euclidean 4-space. The non-transversal intersection (in which the normal vectors of the intersecting hypersurfaces are linearly dependent) includes two different cases. In each case, on the contrary to transversal intersections, we face some difficulties even finding the tangential direction. To overcome such difficulties, we give some algorithms for finding all Frenet vectors and curvatures of the intersection curve. Finally, we demonstrate our methods by giving several examples.
