While structural optimisation is usually handled by iterative methods requiring repeated samples of a physics-based model, this process can be computationally demanding. Given a set of previously optimised structures of the same topology, this paper uses inductive learning to replace this optimisation process entirely by deriving a function that directly(More)
— The design methodology explained in this paper 1 takes a substantial shift from conventional methods where sizing is based on a single load case i.e. the maximum expected load. The difference from a conventional passive approach is that strategically located elements of the system provide controlled output energy (actuators) in order to manipulate(More)
