Title:

    Nature-Based Hybrid Computational Geometry System for Optimizing the Interior Structure of Aerospace Components

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    This talk will describe a recent collaboration between our group and the aircraft manufacturer Airbus for the design of a new aerospace component which uses cutting-edge design and fabrication techniques to radically reduce the weight of the component while maintaining the same structural performance. To achieve these results, we developed a novel computational geometry system which combines a bottom-up growth strategy based on slime mold behavior from nature, with a top-down genetic algorithm framework for optimizing the final design.
