学院邀请加拿大 Alberta 大学 马永胜 教授前往我校举行学术讲座。
讲座题目：Interdisciplinary engineering informatics for industrial research
Success of energy development projects requires close collaboration among engineers from different disciplines. However, till now, there is still lack of systematic information sharing support for such multi-disciplinary collaboration, such as between geo-mechanical and chemical process engineering and mechanical engineering. In this paper, a unified interdisciplinary methodology is proposed based on associative feature to have a generic data representation and multi-physics modelling schema. With the systematically organized and indexed constraints embedded in the feature models, and a supporting change propagation method, this proposed methodology is a good fit for collaborative engineering of sizable projects.
Keywords: Unified Engineering Informatics, Multi-Disciplinary Design Methodology, Collaborative Engineering, Feature-Based Modeling.
