The optimization of three dimensional shapes is one of the most common problems addressed in engineering. This work concerns the use of genetic algorithms (GAs) and b-spline-surface modeling for the optimization of boundary element models. The paper summarizes the genetic optimization process. The model boundary is discretized by using the Boundary Element(More)
Structural optimization is an engineering field which deal with the improvement of existing solutions or even more find new solutions that are better than the previous ones under some selected criterion. Shape optimization is a research area in this field and it is involved in developing new methodologies to find better structural design based on the shape(More)
The treatment of atherosclerotic stenoses is accomplished by a well-established interventional method called Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA). Generally, this procedure is accompanied with the deployment of small tube shape structure to support the wall of the injured artery and improve the limitations of balloon angioplasty, such as restenosis(More)
