Abstract

This paper describes comparison between the emergent design system and the topology optimization method to aim at showing a guideline for application of the emergent design system in a structural design problem. The emergent design system is a design system based on concept of emergence, and can derive diverse solutions under few design conditions. In the present study, a comparison of derived solutions by the emergent design system and the topology optimization method was carried out in two-dimensional cantilever beam design problem which is a basic structural design problem. As a result, including solutions, which is better than a derived solution by the topology optimization method in the stiffness and strength, in derived diverse solutions by the emergent design system, and a guideline for application of the emergent design system in a structural design problem were shown.
