SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS UNDER THE AXIOMATIC DESIGN PRINCIPLES

THE NEED FOR RESILIENCE

Abstract

By the end of the 20th century, a new and wide design concept emerged, sustainable design that is based on three main concerns: society, economy and environment. In an Axiomatic Design standpoint, sustainable designs are usually coupled. This paper is based on the assumption that the nature and the values of the design parameters used to describe the physical solutions conform to the required functionality and satisfy some economic and environmental requirements. This approach leads to suitable zones for the given requirements of different natures, and provides the knowledge that is required for design decision-making. Additionally, the approach warrants resilience to the adopted design solutions. The development of a rubber cork product is presented as an example. The attained results show that the proposed approach is appropriate.
