The traditional Dutch way to deal with piping failure in river dikes is the implementation of piping berms. The disadvantage of such a measure is the required inland space. Relief wells, on the other hand, require less or no inland space representing an attractive alternative solution. The aims of this paper are first, to show how reliability...

Due to the complexity of natural ground condition, consolidation settlement is usually difficult to predict. In this study, a Pareto multi-objective optimization based back analysis method for consolidation settlement is presented in this study. The model is a coupled flow and deformation model for unsaturated soil foundation which is...

Integration of analysis into early design phases in support of improved building performance has become increasingly important. It is considered a required response to demands on contemporary building design to meet environmental concerns. The goal is to assist designers in their decision making throughout the design of a building but with...

We present a design-computation method of design-to-production automation and optimization in digital fabrication; an algorithmic process minimizing material use, reducing fabrication time and improving production costs of complex architectural form. Our system compacts structural elements of variable dimensions within fixed-size sheets of stock...

This paper proposes a computational form-finding method for integrating parametric origami design and acoustic engineering to find the best geometric form of a concert hall. The paper describes an application of this method to a concert hall design project in Japan. The method consists of three interactive subprograms: a parametric origami...

The formation of non-woven fibre structures generated by the Bombyx mori silkworm is explored as a computational approach for shape and material optimization. Biological case studies are presented and a design approach for the use of silkworms as entities that can “compute” fibrous material organization is given in the context of an...

The paper reflects on a relationship between an algorithmic and a standard (intuitive) approach to design of public space. A realized project of a plaza renovation in Czech town Vsetin is described as a study case. The paper offers an overview of benefits and drawbacks of the algorithmic approach in the described study case and it outlines more...

This paper investigates the integration of Building Performance Simulation (BPS) and optimization tools to provide high performance solutions. An office room in Cairo, Egypt was chosen as a base testing case, where a Genetic Algorithm (GA) was used for optimizing the annual daylighting performance of two parametrically modeled daylighting...

Until recently, design teams were constrained by tools and schedule to only be able to generate a few alternatives, and analyze these from just a few perspectives. The rapid emergence of performance-based design, analysis, and optimization tools gives design teams the ability to construct and analyze far larger design spaces more quickly. This...

In situation of contractors competing to finish a given project with the least duration and cost, acquiring the ability to improve the project quality properties seems essential for project managers. Evolutionary Algorithm (EAs) have been applied as suitable algorithms to develop the multi-objective Time-Cost trade-off Optimization (TCO) and...

Preliminary results on shape optimization of a wing-body configuration aiming at reducing sonic boom overpressure will be discussed. The optimization process uses a CAD modeler and an Euler CFD code with adjoint. Thickness, scale, twist and camber at section level were used to obtain gains in ground pressure signature.

The design activity within the EUROLIFT II project is targeted towards an improvement of the take-off performance of a generic transport aircraft configuration by a re-design of the trailing edge flap. The involved partners applied different optimization strategies as well as different types of flow solvers in order to cover a wide range of...

In this paper the possibility of the optimization of coupled problems in partitioned approaches is discussed. As a special focus, surface coupled problems of fluid-structure interaction are considered. Well established methods of optimization are analyzed for usage in the context of coupled problems and in particular for a solution through...

A gradient based method is presented for optimization of an airfoil configuration. The flow is governed by two dimensional, compressible Euler equations. A finite volume code based on unstructured grid is developed to solve the equations. The procedure is carried out for optimizing an airfoil with initial configuration of NACA 0012. The...
