Design Optimization: Future Directions in Finite-Element Modeling 900159

Future directions in finite-element modeling are examined, with emphasis on design-optimization techniques. A powerful and intuitive new method, Geometric Element Modeling is described, based on well-understood, proven extensions of finite-element methods to higher-order analysis. Among the features offered by GEM are automatic analysis, converged to the limit specified by the user, elements with curved edges and surfaces, feature-based analysis, and a powerful set of optimization tools.
