Abstract

Our overall goal is to develop software that facilitates the interactive participation of the designer in the optimization process. We are focusing this research on problems which use finite element solutions as part of the objective function. One challenge to implementing interactive participation in these types of problems is the high computational burden of computing a finite element solution for each design change. The research presented here focuses on a unique method to develop fast approximations for natural frequencies and mode shapes which can be used to avoid the time-consuming re-solution process and which will facilitate interactive design for systems with even large design changes.
