Derivational Analogy Based Structural Design

£6.99

Product description

This monograph presents aspects of research into the application of artificial intelligence in structural design. The authors, leaders in the development of Case Based Design techniques applied to structural engineering provide a detailed insight into their state-of-the-art research on the implementation of novel reasoning techniques in structural design. Case Based Design enables computers not only to store, retrieve and present past designs but also to synthesize design solutions. The primary aim of this book is to address the issues of representation, indexing, retrieval and adaptation in Case Based Design. The issues are illustrated by examples in conceptual structural design.

About the Authors:
Bimal Kumar is a Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland. A Professional Member of the British Computer Society, he is well known for his work on the application of knowledge-based systems to structural design - this has resulted in two books and numerous publications. He is also the founding Secretary/Treasurer of the European Group for Structural Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence (EG-SEA-AI). Benny Raphael is a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Civil Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL). His primary interests are in the application of case based reasoning and model based reasoning to engineering tasks such as design and diagnosis.
