Four-parameter composite beam stiffness optimization dataset (dataset sample)
This is a dataset sample. The dataset describes the relation between the stiffness of a cantilevered composite beam and its manufacturing parameters. This dataset is used to design a beam of required stiffness. Two pieces of software (executables, not code) are included for this analysis. HyperMaps is used to build a spline-based surrogate model of the beam’s constitutive behavior. GraphNURBs is used to conduct robust optimization on the surrogate model to find the most robust beam design that achieves the specified target stiffness. Mathematica notebooks (.nb files) for generating the data and ...
