Study on Modeling of Growth Conceptual Design
Based on decomposition and reconstruction principle, by analyzing the limit essence of rigid body in generalized coordinate system, the paper proposes growth conceptual design model from function to structure. It applies the mechanism of biological growth into conceptual design of products, realizes the stable mapping from function to structure, and also solves the issues of multi-solutions, uncertainty, etc, existing in the mapping process from function to structure of mechanical products in conceptual design stage. Establish the product knowledge model supporting product conceptual design, use the Case-Based reasoning (CBR) technology into entities match and verify it by case, which provides a new idea for the conceptual design of computer aided product.
