Abstract
THE THRUST OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO MATHEMATICALLY MODEL THE FUNCTION, BEHAVIOR AND STRUCTURE ASPECTS OF MECHANICAL DESIGNS AND DEVELOP COMPUTATIONAL MECHANISMS FOR THE DESIGN SYNTHESIS OF MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. THE APPROACH TO BE USED IS A COMBINATION OF THE TRANSFORMATIONAL APPROACH (USED PREVIOUSLY IN SOFTWARE ENGINEERING AND VLSI DESIGN) AND THE PROBLEM SOLVING/PLANNING APPROACH OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. THE DOMAINS OF APPLICATION SELECTED ARE MACHINE DESIGN AND SENSOR-TRANSDUCER DESIGN.
