Generative Design Advances Maritime Infrastructure

Addressing complex challenges and creating cost-efficient and sustainable designs
Pareto Plot - Figure 1

Figure 1 – This image presents the scores of the evaluated options for two design goals—cost efficiency (Canadian dollar) and CO2 emissions reduction—in a so-called pareto plot, showing the best-scoring options in the bottom left of the graph. This display allows designers and/or stakeholders to get visual insight into the trade-off between different design goals when picking the final option.
Calculation Model - Figure 2

Figure 2 – In the generative design process for maritime infrastructure, options are entered into a structural finite element model, which performs code checks before considering the design goals—such as cost efficiency and embodied carbon reduction—so that only safe and stable options are taken into account.
