‘Gielis Transformations in design and engineering’
University of Antwerp, Bio-Engineering Sciences –
Gielis Transformations in design and engineering
Gielis’ Transformations (a.k.a. Superformula) are a generalization of the Pythagorean Theorem. It not only defines the circle, as Pythagoras does, but circles, polygons, starfish, shells, flowers, or superquadrics….; an infinite number of 2D and 3D shapes can be described in a few variables and numbers only.
GT have been used in over 100 widely different applications in science, education and technology. In the field of design and engineering they have been used, among others, for the optimization of wind turbine blades, antennas, nanoparticles and lasers.
In this presentation the following advantages and methods will be highlighted:
• Easy modeling with the computer as a creative sparring partner,
• Extremely compact (and uniform) representations, also of complex shapes,
• Procedural modeling (www.changingthe.game),
• Multi-objective and topology optimization,
• Solution of boundary value problems and mesh-free modeling.

Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from October 26 to 30.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
