Strategies for Interactive Structural Optimization and Composite Material Selection
Standard structural optimization often treats a “cleanly” defined mathematical problem which not always can really match the underlying practical design problem. This for example relates to the only vaguely possible mapping of the real problem to a strict mathematical problem formulation. An often proposed relief is supposed in using the designers experience and insight to be introduced especially via interactive approaches. But practical experience for larger scale problems shows, that one could be easily lost in a tremendous bulk of data to be evaluated. So proper data condensation and data preparation techniques a required. In the following two examples with different applications are presented.
