Development of an Algorithm Preserving Sharp-Edges of Control Meshes in the Doo-Sabin Subdivision Scheme
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~9
Recently, designing 3D objects using various modeling techniques become getting more important issues in related industrial fields. The subdivision scheme is a technique that generates a smooth sur-face through many times of refinement processes that split polygons of control mesh into several smaller polygons. In this paper, we propose a new subdivision algorithm that preserves sharp-edges of control mesh after several refinement processes in the Doo-Sabin subdivision scheme. Using the pro-posed algorithm, the Doo-Sabin subdivision scheme can be well applied to modeling 3D objects with sharp-edges.
An Algorithm of Automatic 2D Quadrilateral Mesh Generation with the Line Constraints
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 10~18
FEM (Finite Element Method) is a fundamental numerical analysis technique in wide spread use in engineering application. As the solving time occupies small portion of entire FEM analysis time because of development of hardware, the relative lime to the whole analysis time to make mesh mod-els is growing. In particular, in the case of stiffeners such as features attached to plate in ship structure, the line constraints are imposed on mesh model together with other constraints such as holes. To auto-matically generate two dimensional quadrilateral mesh with the line constraints, an algorithm is pro-posed based on the constrained Delaunay triangulation and Q-Morph algorithm in which the line constraints are not considered. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated. And some numerical results of our proposed algorithm ate presented.
Structural Analysis of RIROB(Reactor Inspection Robot)
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 19~26
This paper presents the structural analysis of RIROB(Reactor Inspection Robot). Actually, several analyses such as kinetodynamics analysis, fluid mechanics analysis and structural mechanics analysis etc. should be carried out in the design of RIROB. These analyses are executed through the use of com-puter aided engineering(CAE) systems. The kinetodynamics analysis is carried out using a simple fluid dynamic analysis model for the water flow over the sensor support surface instead of difficult fluid mechanics analysis. Simultaneously the structural mechanics analysis is carried out to obtain the mini-mum thickness of the RIROB housing. The minimum thickness of the RIROB housing is evaluated to be 1.0 ㎝ for the safe design of RIROB. The kinetodynamics analysis of RIROB is performed using ADAMS and the static structural mechanics analysis of RIROB is performed using NISA.
Redesign of Computer Case by Consideration of Environmental Influence
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 27~34
In this paper, a redesign of an existing computer case is Proposed by applying some guide lines of assembly and disassembly which have positive effects on environment. Some problems such as Increase of number of disassembly and vibration, and unfittable difficulty in assembly and disassembly of coy-ers are recognized through analysis of geometrical structure in view of both assembly and disassembly. A solution of these problems is proposed by ideas of positive environmental influence through ease of assembly and disassembly. Design for Environment Software is used to evaluate both redesigned and existing products. Time of assembly and disassemb]y and MET-point are especially calculated by the software, and these data give us a good guide for analysis of ease of assembly, ease of disassembly and environmental influence in both products.
Implementation of Web-based CAM System Using VRML and CORBA
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 35~40
In this paper, we present the methods to develop a Web-based CAM system that is capable to simulate machining processes in solid model form through internet. The methods include the dynamic representation on Web of machining operation, workpiece definition on the request of users, interpretation technique of NC par programs through CORBA, and algorithm for efficient machining simulation. Based on the methods, a Web-based CAM system it implemented at http://virtual.ulsan.ac.kr. Using the Web-based CAM system, public users tan simulate machining processes by own NC part programs.
Tetrahedral Mesh Generation Using a Mixed Method of a Grid and an Advancing Front Approach
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 41~47
In this paper, a tetrahedral mesh generation algorithm which uses a grid based method for interior region and an advancing front method for outer surface region is proposed. In order to apply an advancing front method for outer region of an object, a new operator so called a hole operator has been developed to handle multiple shells. With this grid based approach in the interior region, more stable and uniform meshes can be constructed especially in the interior region.
STEP-NC Repository for STEP-Compliant CNC
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 48~54
In a design-to-manufacturing environment, the product data is shared by various CAD/CAM/CAE systems with little integration or substantial data redundancy. The main purpose of this paper is to build a database containing all the features required for STEP-NC machining and to show how a STEP-NC repository can support the complete process for machining. A STEP-NC database schema has been constructed and several query functions have been built for the purpose of implementing the retrieving system of a STEP-NC database. The EXPRESS data model of ISO 14649 has been mapped to the database data definition language of the Oracle database. To apply the STEP-NC database to an industry example, the ISO 14649 part program has been stored into the STEP-NC database. To implement example scenarios, the sample query interface has been built.
ADE: Agent Development Environment for Engineering
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 8, issue 1, 2003, Pages 55~63
ADE i,1 a software tool for the design and implementation of multi-agent systems. ADE allows a designer to draw a multi-agent system graphically, specify the necessary properties, and deploy their applications. ADE offers a set of intuitive, easy to use interfaces that enable a designer to completely specify the agents and agent interactions in a multi-agent system. In this environment, JATLite/sup ［1］/ is improved significantly. Furthermore, ADE provides a unique set of features for a multi-agent system design tool. An agent description method based on Design roadmap/sup ［2］/ theory, a hierarchy of agents, and a fully featured Java-based Graphical User Interface are combined in ADE. This distinct combination of features mates ADE stand out among the existing multi-agent system design tools. This paper presents the research related to the application of the ADE, along with descriptions of its design and implementation.
