In this project, we are looking for a design procedure that employs Genetic Optimization through Galapagos as the driving force to achieve optimal dimensions in height, arc length and number of main blocks for Catenary Arches with three basic modules. Embracing Galapagos as our guiding light, we embark on an evolutionary journey, refining parameters, constraints, and fitness evaluation criteria to push the boundaries of design. Through iterative exploration and the power of Galapagos, we unlock the true potential of catenary arches, creating structures that harmonize form, function, and aesthetic brilliance.
PROJECT AGENDA – PSEUDO CODE:
GENE DESCRIOTION – PARAMETERS:
Achieving the best Catenary Arch with:
- Optimized Height
- Best distance between the base components
- Having the specified number of main block
RUNNIG OPTIMIZATION THROUGH GALAPAGOS:
- Site line chosen for alignment of the generated arch.
- Array direction, perpendicular to the site line.
- Final arch, repeated 60 times in specified direction.
