Numerical and Experimental Shape Optimal Design of a Hole in a Tall Beam
Shape optimal design is a structural optimization process in which the boundary shapes of structures are optimized to meet a set of requirements. This is in contrast with early strategies which dealt mostly with the so-called ...
Development of a CAM System for the Rapid Prototyping Environment
The goal of this research was to develop a Computer-Aided Manufacturing system for rotational parts for application to small-scale manufacturing. The developed software, DPCAM, was to provide an intermediate step between ...
Integration of Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Through Database Interoperability
The traditional, fragmented approach to increasing manufacturing efficiency has resulted in "islands of automation" in our factories. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the goal of typing together these islands ...
Structure of a Flexible Manufacturing Protocol for Design and Control of a Vertical Machining Cell
The thesis presented here develops the Flexible Manufacturing Protocol (FMP) for use in CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing). The philosophy of the FMP is discussed, as well as the FMP structure. A vertical machining ...
