Abstract

To pass from a spherical surface to a conic one, it is possible to use a petal tool or a small solid tool that is placed at different time intervals at several radial zones of the glass. Genetic algorithms are applied to calculate the angular sizes of the incomplete annular tools that make up the petal tools. We also present the desired wear results carried out with the petal tool that was designed on the basis of the dwell times of complete annular tools. These dwell times are calculated by using base functions that are generated with annular tools and by applying the genetic algorithms.
