Slab formwork design using genetic algorithm

Abstract: A method to design cost-optimum slab formwork components is proposed in this paper. Genetic Algorithms (GAs), a technique based on the principles of natural selection and evolution, is applied to solve the optimisation problem. GAs search from a population of possible solutions limited by a set of constraints. The cost of form components and labor involved, were considered for the formulation of the objective function of the optimisation problem. The bending moment, shear, maximum deflection, imposed ACI code provisions, etc., were used as constraints for the optimisation problem. Application of GA to the formwork design problem provides optimum design parameters such as the optimum cross section for form members, optimum spacing of form members, etc., while minimising the total cost. Formwork made either from wood, wood-metal composite or metal alone can be designed using the proposed technique. The paper presents the case of general formwork design, however, the method as a whole readily applies to the design of formwok for elevated slabs and high rise concrete elements.

An Immersive Virtual Reality Mock-Up For Design Review Of Hospital Patient Rooms

Abstract: Having identified a scarcity of evidence-based design principles and practices for patient-centered healthcare environments, researchers at the Purdue University Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering have developed a Virtual reality (VR) mock-up of a hospital patient room to explore its efficacy for identifying how physical environment and design elements impact behavior, processes and safety. The VR patient room mock-up is designed to have a high degree of interactivity to facilitate evaluation of the designed space as a “healing environment.” Positive feedback from healthcare practitioners regarding the mockup has motivated the Investigators to leverage their experience to create VR mock-ups for other hospital units and venues.

Computer based AASHTO pavement design methodology

Abstract: A computer expert system has been developed for design of flexible pavements(FLEXPAVE). The design procedure follows the latest AASHTO Guide for Design ofPavement Structures. The system evaluates required thickness for initial pavement designand the subsequent overlays. The system is an educational and training tool as well as adesign tool. The user is assisted in selecting design inputs by a rule-base expert system. Therules used to determine the recommended values are shown on the screen along with a briefexplanation during the design process. Help screens and various worksheets help the user inselecting design inputs. A sensitivity analysis option allows the user to investigate therequired precision for design inputs. The rules in the expert system are derived from the1993 AASHTO manual and related literature.
