Automation in Structural Design
Structural design can be classified into several design tasks. These tasks need different degrees of human intuition. Those design tasks that require little human intuition and can be systematically written as algorithms may be easily delegated to computers. In contrast, other design tasks that require a lot of human intuition and do not have clear algorithms cannot be done without designers’ experiences. Although it may seem that some of the heuristic design tasks are not difficult and can be handled quite easily even by engineers, in practice, these easy tasks unfortunately prevent the whole design process from being completely automated. In this research area, artificial intelligence (AI) and other advanced computing technologies will be used to remove these hindrances, created by heuristic design tasks, in order that complete structural design automation can be developed.
Advanced Finite Element Analysis
It can be safely said that the finite element method (FEM) is currently the best method for solving mechanical problems. The method has been continuously developed and its progress is quite noticeable. Nevertheless, the development of FEM has been mainly concentrated on the theoretical part of the method. It is now time to integrate new computing technologies with FEM in order that advanced finite element analysis can be performed with ease. In this research area, advanced computing technologies, such as new programming technologies, artificial intelligence, information technologies, and database technologies, will be used to improve the performance and usability of FEM.
