METASET: Exploring Shape and Property Spaces for Data-Driven Metamaterials Design [article]

Yu-Chin Chan, Faez Ahmed, Liwei Wang, Wei Chen
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To select such subsets, we propose METASET, a methodology that 1) uses similarity metrics and positive semi-definite kernels to jointly measure the closeness of unit cells in both shape and property spaces  ...  However, the dependence on data induces a unique challenge: An imbalanced dataset containing more of certain shapes or physical properties can be detrimental to the efficacy of data-driven approaches.  ...  By increasing w, we shift from ranking a subset based on diversity in the property space alone, to a mixture of both spaces, and to the shape space only.  ...

Extended simples

Kris McDaniel
2006 Philosophical Studies  
In the final section of the paper, I show that if the shape properties of material objects are extrinsic, the most popular argument against extended simples fails.  ...  The argument given here parallels an argument given elsewhere for the claim that the shape properties of material objects are extrinsic, not intrinsic as is commonly supposed.  ...  structure of the region of space is not intrinsic, or the mereological structure is not accidental.  ...

If our concept about the relation between phenomenological reality and the creating underlying reality is correct, the unification of the properties of phenomenological reality is part of an enveloping  ...  It has to be a creation of an underlying reality. An all-inclusive existence that has a structure because observable reality shows structure at every scale size.  ...  generated by the properties of the units of the structure of discrete space.  ...

The objective reality of space and time

Sydney Ernest Grimm
2019 Zenodo  
The paper describes the mathematical properties of the structure of space and time.  ...  [V] If space is a structure that is composed of spatial units and the phenomena represent variable properties (III) the invariant volume of every spatial unit cannot have an invariant shape.  ...  Because the basic properties of the building blocks of a structure determine the properties of larger configurations.  ...

IH-GAN: A Conditional Generative Model for Implicit Surface-Based Inverse Design of Cellular Structures [article]

Jun Wang, Wei Wayne Chen, Daicong Da, Mark Fuge, Rahul Rai
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Past work addressing this problem generally either only optimizes the volume fraction of single-type unit cells but ignores the effects of unit cell geometry on properties, or considers the geometry-property  ...  However, the optimization of such cellular structures is challenging due to the multiscale design problem.  ...  This results in a one-to-many mapping from the property space to the shape parameter space. The magnitude of shape variation, however, differs when conditioned on different properties.  ...

Liwei Wang, Yu-Chin Chan, Faez Ahmed, Zhao Liu, Ping Zhu, Wei Chen
2020 arXiv   pre-print
First, the latent space of VAE provides a distance metric to measure shape similarity, enabling interpolation between microstructures and encoding meaningful patterns of variation in geometries and properties  ...  For microstructure design, the tuning of mechanical properties and complex manipulations of microstructures are easily achieved by simple vector operations in the latent space.  ...  Semantic structures of the latent space are identified to enable higher-level control of the mechanical properties.  ...

Extending the Algebras of Design

Iestyn Jowers, Christopher F. Earl
2015 Nexus Network journal  
These give rise to significant questions about the relationships between shapes and the property of embedding, which is fundamental to the construction of algebras of design.  ...  Algebras of design have previously been investigated for shapes composed of rectilinear geometric elements, such as lines and planes, and the properties of these algebras have been found to be beneficial  ...  Because of the topology of this space, the properties of the resulting algebra of design are not the same as for shapes arranged in a Euclidean space.  ...
