Path Design Of Large Flexible Material Handing
When moving a partially constrained large and flexible material, vibration is always a concern, especially if the material is brittle. This paper suggests an approach that uses a genetic algorithm (GA) to search for the optimal path for moving a flexible structure within a given time constraint. A simple cantilever beam with a moving foundation is used as the implementation example. The results show that a GA can provide a set of "good"solutions within a small number of generations of evolution. This approach can be very efficient if the mathematical optimum is not absolutely necessary.
