Iso-geometry - Unified modelling for design and analysis in communicating organizations

To build knowledge and techniques for removing the time and resource consuming bottleneck between design and analysis of complex products, by introducing high-quality 3D geometrical representations and methods for use throughout the product value chain.

Secondary objectives:

  1. To define a common representation to be used both in design and analysis, hereafter termed an iso-geometric representation. This will be a water-tight representation of the complete volume.
  2. To develop techniques for introducing the iso-geometric representations in legacy systems, within both design and analysis.  - For design systems, to repair low-quality CAD-models such that high-quality iso-geometric CAD-models are formed. The new models can be used downstream inthe value chain and can easily be converted back to traditional CAD-representations. - For analysis systems, to interface the iso-geometric CAD-representations with traditional tools, such as simulation by Finite Element Methods (FEM).
  3. To build prototypes of new and improved analysis tools, using FEM models derived from the iso-geometric representations. -To demonstrate the superiority of iso-geometric representations in design and analysis within chosen applications, using the developed prototypes.
  4. To investigate the impact of having both a unified model through the value chain and a seamless integration between design and analysis/simulation. - To identify and investigate value added services that can be introduced due to the increased interactivity in the value chain, such as optimization of products. - To demonstrate enhancements in rich media applications, such as in true-to-life gaming applications, within the topic of integrated operations in the oil and gas industry and in health applications.
