JournalFinite Elements in Analysis and Design
Structural optimization is part of the mechanical engineering field and, in most cases, tries to minimize the overall weight of a given design domain, subjected to functionality constraints given in terms of stresses of displacements. The most relevant techniques are topology and shape optimization. Topology optimization provides the optimal material distribution layout into a given, static, design domain. On the other hand, shape optimization provides the optimal combination of the parameters that define the required parametrization of the domain's boundary. Both techniques have strengths and weaknesses, thus a hybrid optimization approach that combines the former techniques will define a more general structural optimization framework that will take advantage of their synergistic combination. The difficulty arises when communicating both techniques for which, in this paper, we propose a machine learning-based methodology.

In particular, anormal diffusion appears ...
Real-Time Path Planning Based on Harmonic Functions under a Proper Generalized Decomposition-Based Framework Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureMONTÉS, Nicolas; CHINESTA, Francisco; MORA, Marta C.; FALCÓ, Antonio; HILARIO, Lucia; ROSILLO, Nuria; NADAL, Enrique (MDPI AG, 2021)This paper presents a real-time global path planning method for mobile robots using harmonic functions, such as the Poisson equation, based on the Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) of these functions. The main property ...

Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureMARECHAL, David; SAINTIER, Nicolas; PALIN-LUC, Thierry; NADAL, François (Trans Tech Publications, 2014)Due to its specific mechanical properties, tantalum is often used in strength-demanding military applications. High-cycle fatigue (HCF) behaviour of pure tantalum, however, has been rarely reported and the mechanisms at ...
