Many modern products, such as automobiles, aircrafts, laptops and smartphones, are engineered systems. The performance, function, and architecture of an engineered system continuously changes and improves over time. For example, cell phones of the 1990’s were limited to phone calls and text messages. Today's cell phones are computers capable of cinematography and reading the news. Research in engineered system evolution goes beyond tracking and predicting the technical performance and the functional and architectural changes of existing engineered systems. This research also studies how and why these changes occur and searches for causal factors behind these evolutions. Read more...
Data-Driven Design Space Exploration and Exploitation for Design for Additive Manufacturing
Yi Xiong, Pham Luu Trung Duong, Dong Wang, Sang-In Park, Qi Ge, Nagarajan Raghavan, David W. Rosen
The capabilities of additive manufacturing offer significant potential for revolutionizing existing product development processes by creating products that are rich in shape, material, hierarchical, and functional complexities. However, searching through design solutions in such a multidimensional design space is a challenging task. In this study, the authors propose a holistic approach that applies data-driven methods in successive stages of design search and optimization. Read more...
A Spatial Grammar Method for the Computational Design Synthesis of Virtual Soft Locomotion Robots
Merel van Diepen and Kristina Shea
Soft locomotion robots are intrinsically compliant and have a large number of degrees of freedom. However, the hand-design of soft robots is often a lengthy trail-and-error process. This paper presents the computational design of virtual, soft locomotion robots using an approach that integrates simulation feedback. The Computational Design Synthesis (CDS) approach consists of three stages: (1) generation, (2) evaluation through simulation, and (3) optimization. Read more...
