• Assembly sequencing through graph reasoning : graph grammar rules for assembly planning 

    Manion, Charles Austin (2013-12)
    Assembly planning is difficult and tedious, but is necessary for complex products. This thesis presents a novel approach to automating assembly planning utilizing graph grammars. Computational geometric reasoning ...
  • A concurrent approach to automated manufacturing process planning 

    Fu, Wentao (2014-05)
    With the increasing demand of fast-paced and hybrid manufacturing processes in modern industry, it is desirable to expedite the iterations between design and manufacturing through intelligent computational techniques. In ...
  • A graph grammar based approach to automated manufacturing planning 

    Fu, Wentao (2012-05)
    In this thesis, a new graph grammar representation is proposed to reason about the manufacturability of solid models. The knowledge captured in the graph grammar rules serves as a virtual machinist in its ability to recognize ...
  • A graph grammar scheme for representing and evaluating planar mechanisms 

    Radhakrishnan, Pradeep, 1984- (2010-05)
    There are different phases in any design activity, one of them being concept generation. Research in automating the conceptual design process in planar mechanisms is always challenging due to the existence of many different ...
  • Rule based stochastic tree search 

    Kumar, Mukund (2011-12)
    This work presents an enhancement of a search process that is suited for a problem that can be solved using a graph grammar based generative tree. Generative grammar can be used to generate a vast number of design alternatives ...
