Information Technology of Material Choice for Improvement of Friction Unit Life Cycle 2001-01-3753
Computer-aided technology of gathering, analysis and processing of tribological information is presented. It is based on Internet opportunities for exchange of information, Database and Knowledge processing technologies for keeping and using of the information. Proposed approach allows to solve unformalized problems of material choice for friction units by methods of Artificial Intelligence. Algorithms and software for tribodesigning were developed. It could be used either as a separate design tool or as a part of some existing CAD/CAE system. It should allow to include solution of the life cycle improvement problems into computer-aided designing of automotive machines.
