Abstract

In styling design, the construction of method for representation of macroscopic feature and the construction of method for control of macroscopic feature are important. This paper describes the method for representation of macroscopic feature "complexity" in curved profile, and the shape generation method for control of complexity. Firstly, method for representation of macroscopic feature "complexity" was proposed. "Complexity" affects evaluation of the important factor on design, such as "beauty" and "similarity." In the present study, the method for representation of complexity was applied to the diverse curved profiles. As a result, it was found that curvature integration represents the complexity in the diverse curved profiles. Next, based on Genetic Algorithm, shape generation method using method for representation of complexity was proposed, and was applied to the design of automobile side-view. As a result, it was confirmed that curvature integration control the complexity in curved profile, and it was shown that the possibility of new design-support in curved profile using macroscopic feature driven shape generation method.
