Implementation of collaborative multidisciplinary design optimization for conceptual design of a complex engineering product
2016 (English)In: Concurrent Engineering - Research and Applications, ISSN 1063-293X, E-ISSN 1531-2003, Vol. 24, no 3, 251-265 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This study investigates the performance of the collaborative multidisciplinary design optimization framework and how it facilitates the knowledge integration process. The framework is used to design and optimize an innovative concept of a tidal water power plant. The case study helps to highlight the challenges that may occur during implementation. The result is presented as a modified framework with less implementation difficulties. The improved framework shows significant reduction in design time and improvement in collaborative design optimization for a design team. The geometry of the product is optimized to minimize weight and maximize the power generated by the turbine with respect to some mechanical constraints.
