I am a structureal engineer working on the desigh of building structures. One of the areas The I am particularily interested in is that of optimisation. The image below shows the result of one of my analysis runs. The algorthym eats away at the design space culling the elements that are not benificial to the structure.
These analyses are very computationally intensive. This one took about 10 hours to analyse. The raw data was then rendered using the Ray trading software POV-RAY
