Case Based Reasoning Support for Adaptive Finite Element Analysis: Mesh Selection for an Integrated System

Abid Ali Khan, Imran Ali Chaudhry, Ali Sarosh


An Adaptive Finite Element Analysis Integrated System supported through application of Case Based Reasoning (CBR) methodology is being proposed in this paper. The approach is fruitful for selection of an initial mesh from a library of solutions to initiate analysis process, as already tested optimal mesh will have lesser refinement iterations. The optimal mesh distribution, represented by object-oriented method, can be easily adapted to the topology of new problem in same domain. An integrated and universal structural analysis system models human reasoning by forming solutions through the retrieval and adaptation of successful strategies used in the past. Basic insight of two distinct subjects along with resolution of involved issues and integration strategy for development of an intelligent system is elaborated here. The research explains an algorithm for case retrieval and mesh generation procedures based on the principles of mapping method.
