title Optimization Process Towards Robotic Manufacturing in Actual Scale - The Implementation of Genetic Algorithms in the Robotic Construction of Modular Formwork Systems
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 169-178
summary The application of optimization processes in architectural design has gained significant attention among architects and recently has become a driving force towards more robust, reliable as well as flexible design investigations. Such application, require handling of multiple parameters, aiming at finding the range of possible solutions in morphological or topological problems of optimization, mostly during the design decision-making process and under the influence of functional, environmental, structural, or other design criteria. This ongoing research investigation puts forward the hypothesis that optimization processes might be equally applied during the construction decision-making process where architectural systems are examined in terms of their ability to be statically efficient and easily manufactured through the use of robotic machines. This is important to exist within a bidirectional platform of communication where the design decision-making will inform decision taken during pre-construction stage and vise versa. In order to test our hypothesis, two case studies are developed that implements genetic algorithms to examine the geometric and static behavior as well as the construction ability of proposed flexible three-dimensional modular formworks and overall systems for concrete casting, aiming to be robotically manufactured in actual scale.
