BIOMA is a key conference specifically focusing on bioinspired optimisation methods and their applications. This international conference provides an opportunity to the global research community in bioinspired optimisation to discuss recent research results and develop new ideas and collaborations in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
In the speech titled Bio-Inspired Optimization Based on BGM and Mesh Morphing Surface Sculpting two cases powered by RBF Morph has been illustrated by University of Roma Tor Vergata: the first referring to the growth of tree trunks under specific loads; the second referring to the optimization of an after-market component for high performances motorbikes.
The Biological Growth Method (BGM) is an efficient optimization approach suitable for the surface stress reduction in a specific mechanical component and allows us to obtain a more homogeneous stress distribution. This method mimics the way in which biological structures, such as tree trunks, bones and horns, evolve during their growth. The effectiveness of the BGM methodology, coupled with mesh morphing technique based on Radial Basis Functions (RBF), is presented here. Two cases are illustrated: the first referring to the growth of tree trunks under specific loads; the second referring to the optimization of an after-market component for high performances motorbikes.
