Abstract

In this work, the design of kinematic and dynamic parameters of links of a mobile manipulator is stated as a numerical optimization problem (NOP). The NOP aims to minimize the mechanical energy of the system in critical positions given by the vertices of a workspace and consequently [...]

Abstract

The design of the launching nose of an incrementally launched bridge determines its constructive process and, therefore, also its dimensions. The optimization of the launching nose can raise as a first step to improve the design of a launched bridge. The conventional design process [...]

Abstract

The limb design for a biped robot is a key issue to improve the locomotion and the performance of biped robots. The use of mechanism for tracking the gait is not an easy task because the degree of freedom (d . g . f ) of the Cartesian space movement does not correspond to the d . [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a methodology for solving shape optimization problems in the context of fluid flow problems including adaptive remeshing. The method is based on the computation of the [...]
