Andreas Vlahinos

CTO , Advanced Engineering Solutions

Dr. Andreas Vlahinos is a CTO of Advanced Engineering Solutions. Andreas has concentrated on rapid new product development. He has been instrumental in rapid product development through the implementation of Design For Six Sigma (DFSS) and Computer Aided Concurrent Engineering for several Government agencies such as NASA, NREL, SANDIA, DOE and US Army Aviation & Missile Command and industry partners such as IBM, Coors, Lockheed Martin, Alcoa, Allison Engine Comp., Solar Turbines, Ball, Futech, American Standard, Kohler, Varian, Stewart & Stevenson, Harris Corp., GENERAL DYNAMICS, TDM, PTC, MDI, Ford Motor Company, Rockwell Collins, BIC, BAE, XEROX, United Launch Alliance, SpaceX, Woodward Inc., Gichner Shelter Systems, NAVISTAR Defense, Flyer Defense, Viper Inc., Lincoln Composites, Advanced Composite Products & Technology, Inc., TetraPak, TOYOTA, as well as several others. He has been Professor of structural engineering at the University of Colorado teaching courses in Structural Mechanics and Computer Aided Structural Engineering. Several times he received the Professor of the Year Award, and he has published over 150 publications in areas of structural dynamics, design optimization and DFSS. He has received the R&D 100 award and several patents. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Georgia Institute of Technology. Finally, he is regularly invited as a keynote speaker on a variety of subjects (Generative Design, Innovation, DFSS, DfAM, IoT) in international conferences.

CA1522C - Art of Possible: Generative Design and Lattice Structures

Generative design leverages AI to provide optimized alternatives based on a range of engineering and manufacturing constraints while lattices can reduce the weight of a part, while also fulfilling its physical requirement. With generative design, multiple alternatives can be computed simultaneously. With lattices, there are improvements to strength-to-weight ratio, flexibility, and reduction of costs. Lattices can also be used to generate “metamaterials” that have properties that don’t exist in nature. A special focus will be placed on aerospace and medical use cases where generative design and lattice modeling enable personalized solutions, optimize performance, minimize weight, and bring innovative products to market in record time.
