Implementation of CAD Data Translation System using STEP
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 87~96
IGES is a file format which has gained widespread use but has certain limitations such as limited information coverage and ambiguous definitions. In order to overcome the limitations of existing neutral file formats, STEP has been developed as a more comprehensive mechanism for product data exchange by ISO. This paper describes a file translation system between IGES and STEP. In this system, three EXPRESS schemata are defined for IGES, STEP and the translation relationship between IGES and STEP. Object codes are generated from the schemata and linked with file access libraries to IGES and STEP files. The translation was verified by visualization and reverse translation. The system developed in this study can easily applied to translate other file formats because the file structure and translation relationship are defined in EXPRESS - a high level information modeling language.
Computer Aided Drawing Check for CAD Systems A Method for the Checking of Dimensions in Mechanical Part Drawings
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 97~106
Existing CAD systems do not provide advanced functions for automatic checking design and drafting errors in mechanical drawings. If the knowledge of checking in mechanical ddrsfting can be implemented into computers, CAD systems could automatically check for design and drafting errors. This paper describes a method for systematic checking of dimension errors. such as deficiency and/or redundancy of dimension input-errors in dimension figures and symbols, etc. The logic for finding dimensional errors is written by using a proccedural language. A geometric model and a topological-graph model are used in this method. Checking for deficiency and redundancy of dimensions is based upon graph Theory.
Optimal Stacking Sequence Design of Laminated Composites under Buckling Loads
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 107~121
An optimization procedure is proposed to determine the optimal stacking sequence on the buckling of laminated composite plates with midplane symmetry under various loading conditions. Classical lamination theory is used for the determination of the critical buckling load of simply supported angle-ply laminates. Analysis is performed by the Galerkin method and Rayleigh-Ritz method. The approximate solution of buckling is replaced by the algorithms that produce generalized eigenvalue problem. Direct search technique is employed to solve the optimization problem effectively. A series of computations is carried out for plates having different aspect ratios, different load ratios and different number of lay-ups.
A Study on the Representation of the Dimensions in the Feature-based Modeler Based on the B-rep
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 122~132
Features are generic shapes with which engineers associate certain attributes and knowledge useful in reasoning about the product. Feature-based modeling systems support additional levels of information beyond those available in geometric modelers. The objective of this study is to develop a PC level feature-based modeling system which explicitly represents dimensions of the part. The feature-based modeler retains all the benefits of traditional B-rep. solid models, and represents the dimensions at a high level of a abstraction so that dimension driven geometry can be achieved.
Feature-Based Non-manifold Geometric Modeling System to Provide Integrated Environment for Design and Analysis of Injection Molding Products
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 133~149
In order to reduce the trial-and-errors in design and production of injection molded plastic parts, there has been much research effort not only on CAE systems which simulate the injection molding process, but also on CAD systems which support initial design and re-design of plastic parts and their molds. The CAD systems and CAE systems have been developed independently with being built on different basis. That is, CAD systems manipulate the part shapes and the design features in a complete solid model, while CAE systems work on shell meshes generated on the abstract sheet model or medial surface of the part. Therefore, it is required to support the two types of geometric models and feature information in one environment to integrate CAD and CAE systems for accelerating the design speed. A feature-based non-manifold geometric modeling system has been developed to provide an integrated environment for design and analysis of injection molding products. In this system, the geometric models for CAD and CAE systems are represented by a non-manifold boundary representation and they are merged into a single geometric model. The suitable form of geometric model for any application can be extracted from this model. In addition, the feature deletion and interaction problem of the feature-based design system has been solved clearly by introducing the non-manifold Boolean operation based on 'merge and selection' algorithm. The sheet modeling capabilities were also developed for easy modeling of thin plastic parts.
Development of the CAMSsystem for CNC Hob Relieving Lathe
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 150~157
The hob is considered as an effective gear cutting tool for achieving the various gears such as spur gear, helical gear, worm gear and so on. To enhance the productivity and precision of hobs and the competitive ability of domestic CNC hob relieving lathes, a CAM system for CNC hob relieving lathe needs to be realized. In this study, the CAM system is developed based on the personal computer and C language. Besides the automatic generation of CNC data, the developed CAM system has the various capabilities related to the generation of tool path, the cutting simulation for verifying the generated CNC data and forecasting the cutting time, the DNC operation for communicating the CNC data with CNC controller by RS232C port, and the estimation of undercut length for verifying the hob cutting conditions.
Bezier Control Points for the Image of a Domain Curve on a Bezier Surface
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 158~162
Algorithms to find the Bezier control points of the image of a Bezier domain curve on a Bezier surface are described. The diagonal image curve is analysed and the general linear case is transformed to the diagonal case. This proposed algorithm gives the closed form solution to find the control points of the image curve of a linear domain curve. If the domain curve is not linear, the image curve can be obtained by solving the system of linear equations.
Configuration Design Methods for a Design Expert System of Paper Feeding Mechanism
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 1, issue 2, 1996, Pages 163~172
One of the design methods which emulates the engineering design process, the configuration design methodology, is applied to the design process of paper feeding mechanism which handles paper in a laser beam printer. Components of a paper feeding mechanism should be designed not to incur vibration to paper and to keep paper flat when transferring. Hybrid knowledge representation is used where the design methods and experience is represented as rules, design parts are represented as objects according to the functions within the printer feeding mechanisms Reliability of design can be improved by referencing various design constraints concurrently.
