Deep Learning

With our colleagues from DMAT Polimi, we propose non-intrusive deep learning-based reduced order models (DL-ROM) capable of capturing the complex dynamics of mechanical systems showing inertia and geometric nonlinearities.
A convolutional autoencoder is employed to map the system response onto a low-dimensional representation and, in parallel, to model the reduced nonlinear trial manifold. The system dynamics on the manifold is described by means of a deep feedforward neural network that is trained together with the autoencoder. By comparing the different computational costs, we discuss the impressive gain in performance and show that the DL-ROM truly represents a real-time tool which can be profitably and efficiently employed in complex system-level simulation procedures for design and optimization purposes.
