Abstract

This paper presents an approach to designing multi-chambered pro le structures made by a new manufacturing process called linear ow splitting using an algorithm based approach. The basis for this procedure is a systematic view of product properties and the separation of its internal and external properties. The link between product properties must be derived by design knowledge such as physical models or guidelines. This specific knowledge enables one to decide which internal properties, as optimization parameters, need to be adjusted in order to meet desired external properties. This procedure leads to mathematical problems that are difficult to solve, presenting a challenge for research. This approach is demonstrated with an example of a development assignment seeking a topology of a pro le structure consisting of several chambers
