The researchers who answered the questionnaire and were strongly interested in
using the capabilities of FRISCO came from the following fields:
In general, all these researchers arrived at a nonlinear
problem since linearization (which is, in general, the usual first step)
was either not possible due to the characteristics of the problem,
or did not provide accurate enough results.
- Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Modelling (CAM) and
Computer Aided Engineering (CAE).
- Mechanical Systems Design.
- Signal Processing and Filter Design.
- Civil Engineering.
- Fluids, Materials and Durability.
The nonlinear problems to be solved appear mainly in two different ways:
either as a nonlinear system of equations, or as an optimization
problem where the objective function is nonlinear or the feasible set is
defined by some set of nonlinear conditions.
