Conference Proceeding
Lapok, P., Lawson, A., & Paechter, B. (2018)
2-Dimensional Outline Shape Representation for Generative Design with Evolutionary Algorithms. In H. Rodrigues, J. Herskovits, C. Mota Soares, A. Araújo, J. Guedes, J. Folgado, …J. Madeira (Eds.), EngOpt 2018 Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Engineering Optimization, 926-937. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-97773-7_80
In this paper, we investigate the ability of genetic representation methods to describe two-dimensional outline shapes, in order to use them in a generative design system. A s...
