Speaker in AI in AEC conference: “A multi-criteria conceptual design method using genetic algorithms to optimize structures’ cost and environmental impacts”

I will present our recent research, where we developed an AI-based computer-assisted design tool to assist structural engineers in the decision-making process of building design. The tool is constructed upon Non-dominated Sorted Genetic Algorithm II (NSGA ii) using Python and aims to optimize structures’ cost and environmental impacts. You can register here.

New article: Resource‐efficient joint fabrication by welding metal 3D‐printed parts to conventional steel: A structural integrity study

Together with Filippo Berto (Chair of Mechanics of Materials, Fracture Mechanics and Fatigue, NTNU Norway) and Martina Chierici (PhD candidate, Politecnico di Milano), we presented a ‘hybrid’ manufacturing approach to weld optimized 3d-printed nodes to conventional steel elements, and our numerical modeling approach for its structural integrity study: Chierici, M, Berto, F, Kanyilmaz, A.

Online lecture: i3Dc | 3D printing: Challenges and Opportunities in Construction

In the event organized by Instituto da Construção of Porto (Portugal), I will talk about robotic steel construction, and discuss the potentials of the laser-cutting and metal 3D printing techniques in reaching resource-efficient and elegant construction products. To participate, you can register from this link of the event.
