INTELLIGENT ANALYTICAL AIDS IN DESIGN - Decision Support to Engineering Analysis Process

Bojan Dolšak, Marina Novak

Abstract

Analytical aids represent a group of the most widely applied intelligent computer systems for supporting design process. Such systems capture the expertise of a specialist in the application of a design technique – for instance in the development of an analytical model, in the forming of assumptions or in the interpretation of results. An example discussed here is an "expert" aid to be applied within structural analysis using finite element method. The system is constituted from three modules, one for finite element selection, the other for finite element mesh design and the third one for results’ interpretation.
