Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 1~10
Recently, a shipyard is making every effort to efficiently manage equipments of resources such as a gantry crane, transporter, and so on. So far block lifting scheduling of a gantry crane has been manually performed by a manager of the shipyard, and thus it took much time to get scheduling results and moreover the quality of them was not optimal. To improve this, a block lifting scheduling system of the gantry crane using optimization techniques was developed in this study. First, a block lifting scheduling problem was mathematically formulated as a multi-objective optimization problem, considering the minimization of travel distance at an idle state and wire replacement during block lifting. Then, to solve the problem, a meta-heuristic optimization algorithm based on the genetic algorithm was proposed. To evaluate the efficiency and applicability of the developed system, it was applied to an actual block lifting scheduling problem of the shipyard. The result shows that blocks can be efficiently lifted by the gantry crane using the developed system, compared to manual scheduling by a manager.

Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 11~23
A flexible and correct model of the activity flows is required for workflows in product development environments. In particular, the design activity flows are not known until run-time, and conventional approaches have limit to handle this situation because they cannot predefine all the potentially reachable paths. Thus, the structure of the workflow model must be flexible enough to describe variety in workflow design and accommodate dynamic changes during workflow execution. In this paper, we provide the general primitive axioms and change patterns based on event calculus for dynamic workflow specification and execution mechanisms in product development environments. Also, we describe how to execute the workflow dynamically based on the workflow specification and workflow change patterns using abductive planning technique.
A B-spline based Branch & Bound Algorithm for Global Optimization
Park, Sang-Kun ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 24~32
This paper introduces a B-spline based branch & bound algorithm for global optimization. The branch & bound is a well-known algorithm paradigm for global optimization, of which key components are the subdivision scheme and the bound calculation scheme. For this, we consider the B-spline hypervolume to approximate an objective function defined in a design space. This model enables us to subdivide the design space, and to compute the upper & lower bound of each subspace where the bound calculation is based on the LHS sampling points. We also describe a search tree to represent the searching process for optimal solution, and explain iteration steps and some conditions necessary to carry out the algorithm. Finally, the performance of the proposed algorithm is examined on some test problems which would cover most difficulties faced in global optimization area. It shows that the proposed algorithm is complete algorithm not using heuristics, provides an approximate global solution within prescribed tolerances, and has the good possibility for large scale NP-hard optimization.
A Study on Medial Surface Extraction from Point Samples on 3D Closed Surfaces in Shell Shapes
Woo, Hyuck-Je ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 33~42
In this study, new medial surface calculation methods using Voronoi diagrams are investigated for the point samples extracted on closed surface models. The medial surface is defined by the closure of all points having more than one closest point on the shape boundary. It is a one of essential geometric information in 3D and can be used in many areas such as 3D shape analysis, dimension reduction, freeform shape deformation, image processing, computer vision, FEM analysis, etc. In industrial parts, the idealized solid parts and shell shapes including sharp edges and vertices are frequently used. Other medial surface extraction methods using Voronoi diagram have inherent separation and branch problems, so that they are not appropriate to the sharp edged objects and have difficulties to be applied to industrial parts. In addition, the branched surfaces on sharp edges in shell shapes should be eliminated to obtain representative medial shapes. In order to avoid separation and branch problems, the new approach by analyzing the shapes and specially sampling on surfaces has been developed.

Generation of over one hundred million mesh is essential for getting an exact analysis result of penetration, combustion, and explosion of missile. But because no domestic modeler to support this exists and a modeler only for missile also has not been developed yet, it is too difficult to get this goal. In this research we develop a modeler only for an engineering analysis of missile using 64bit computing system to solve current problems.
Implementation of RPMS, the Evaluation and Management Tool for Urban Residential Performance and Possible Applications
Park, Soo-Hoon ; Lee, Sang-Hyun ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 51~59
People evaluate urban residential regions quite frequently and sensitively, considering issues such as locations or ease of use of in-site facilities or nearby urban facilities, and those results are bound to be reflected to real estate costs quite immediately. However, there have been frequently recurring questions regarding objectivity of evaluations in terms of results and methods reflected on indexes such as land costs for various reasons. RPMS -Residence Performance Management System- which targets currently in most cases on urban residential areas, suggests instrumental methodology of objective approach toward sensitive urban residence performance evaluation. This paper explains and suggests instrumental utilization of RPMS and its implementations, evaluation methodology and quantitative way of evaluation. In terms of implementation we explain issues such as adding target locations into new residence planning sites, quantification of properties on evaluation indexes of residential performance and/or habitability in terms of checklists, formulas for evaluation, delicate adjustment of evaluation results by setting weights on evaluation indexes, as well as reports on results. Research on appropriate weights and weight settings regarding evaluation indexes, however, exceeds the range of this paper so that this paper focuses on explaining residence performance evaluation and management methodology.

Outfitting systems in marine vessels have many kinds of standard parts. Ship CAD system should support the designers with an efficient tool for the modeling of outfitting parts such as pipes and valves. We develop a practical procedure for a part master model that combines ship CAD systems with the industrial standard. Part master or catalogue database of standard equipments is included in the database of ship CAD. The part master makes the associations of three dimensional modeling with the industrial standard. Moreover, it reflects the automatic modeling to maintain attributes that are disclosed in the entity of each part master in order to reduce the modeling time. Entity and attributes of pipe and valves are chosen from JIS(Japanese Industrial Standards) in order to explain the proposed procedure. Suggested procedure explains that three dimensional model of equipment is generated by parsing the pre-defined attributes after the entities of part masters is stored in database.

Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 15, issue 1, 2010, Pages 70~83
Recently, floating cranes are mainly used to erect heavy blocks or cargos for constructing ships in many shipyards. It is important to estimate the dynamic motion of the heavy cargo suspended by a floating crane and the tension of the wire ropes between the floating crane and the heavy cargo. In this paper, the coupled dynamic equations of motion are set up for considering the 6 degree-of-freedom floating crane and the 6-degrees-of-freedom heavy cargo based on multibody system dynamics. Depending on the cargo weight, the motion of the floating crane would be changed to nonlinear state. The nonlinear terms in the equation of motion are considered. In addition, the nonlinear hydrostatic force, the linear hydrodynamic force, wire rope force, mooring force and gravity force are considered as the external forces. As the result of this paper, we analyze the engineering effect for erecting the heavy cargo by using the floating crane.
