Advanced Mathematical Modelling for Glass Surface Optimization with PSO 2019-28-0104

In automobile car body door engineering, fitting a styling surface of side door glass to the cylinder or torus is the basic requirement. Optimization is required to approximate the class A side door glass surface to cylindrical or toroidal surface. This optimization process requires a solver which could be efficacious for best surface fitting. This paper propounds a methodology which could be used for fitting a styling surface of side door glass to the cylinder or torus. The method will significantly help in developing the required surface and would successfully obsolete the onerous manual calibrations. The mathematical model mentioned is a novel approach based on “Particle Swarm Optimization” towards surface optimization technique. VB script is used to make it applicable in CATIA but could be easily applied in python, java etc.
