Abstract
The goal of this SBIR project is to developplug-and-play query-based platform that providesa general and scalable solution to CAD-CAE and CAE-CAEinteroperability problems.The approach is based on the followingobservations: (1) the shape and material information in any CAD model may be abstracted by a finite collection of queries -- formally defined andcomputable functions -- that eliminate the need for preprocessing, conversion and transfer of CAD models; (2) Most of CAE interoperability challenges reduce to the need to allocate and sample basis functions and their derivatives over geometric domain and its boundary that are already represented unambiguously in every CAD system.ThePhase I of the project demonstrated that the legacy CAE codes may be supplemented with standardizedqueries, allowing automated analysis on non-conforming meshes (of space), eliminating the need for semi-manual preprocessing or meshing, and achieving automated plug-and-play CAD-CAE interoperability.Specific objectives of the Phase II project include:development of comprehensive approaches to fully interoperable CAD-CAD and CAD-CAE challenges to be deployed on the platform, design of industrial grade plug-and-play platform, and deployment of the platform as a standalone library and a web product.
