A collection of papers from a conference held at Kings College, London. Computer-based Design focuses on all areas of design using computational methods and examines how all these individual tools can be integrated to produce a coherent design process. This volume also covers areas of manual design methods and modelling that are vital to the continuing development and evolution of the computer-aided design process. Computer-based Design provides an excellent opportunity for an update on the latest techniques and developments from concept to advanced application in the design arena. TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE - Product design and modelling - Design process - Decision-making models - Computer-assisted design systems - Computer-assisted conceptual design - Computer-assisted detailed design - Computer assisted design for manufacture - Design knowledge manipulation - Engineering change - Engineering design issues - Fuzzy design - Computer-aided design - Industrial applications of design - Advanced design applications - Computational fluid dynamics
