Multiobjective Optimization of Spline Curves using modeFRONTIER

Amir Mosavi (University of Debrecen)

This paper aims to widen the awareness of the readers of the effective application of modeFRONTIER in optimization the splines. The combination of modeFRONTIER and splining is introduced for developing the profile design procedures which use CAD and CAE tools as an interface to the designer and splines for profile construction.

After an introduction to multiobjective optimization (MOO) problem of the splining, the foundations of an automated engineering design environment are briefly presented. Then the former GA-based approach to 
splined profile optimization is reviewed. In following the selective approaches to profile design and surface 
deformation utilizing the general strategy of modeFRONTIER are reviewed and its benefits in developing
mechanical design procedures are described.
