The ASME IDETC/CIE 2017

Dr Jian Zhang participated in the ASME 2017 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference IDETC/CIE 2017, August 06-09, 2017, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Dr Zhang and his colleague from Canada have presented their work on “An interactive design method based on dual-domain transformations”.


Abstract

This paper proposes an interactive method for product design based on dual-domain transformations from the principle domain to physical domain. The method considers that product design is a process to search proper actions or reactions to interact with product’s surroundings. Such actions or reactions are used to develop elements of a product by building energy-flow and force-path connections. The actions and reactions of energy flows, force paths, space and interface constraints are physically formed through the dual-domain transformation. A multi-purpose electric vehicle is developed using the proposed method.
