Design optimisation with metamodels and metaheuristics, structural topology optimisation
Cambridge University, 16-17 April 2018
|Copyright: Joris Laarman|
The process of design and manufacture has developed over the centuries and is now increasingly reliant on computer-based analyses to reduce development costs and timescales. This course will describe key optimisation concepts and methods which enable complex design problems to be formulated mathematically and optimised much more quickly than using traditional iterative design methods.
This course will enable participants to:
Formulate well-posed design optimisation problems which can account for multiple, competing objectives
Gain and understanding of a number of the most useful design optimisation techniques, including design of experiments, metamodeling, and deterministic and stochastic search methods
Gain an understanding of structural topology optimisation
Understand the main approaches to robust design and reliability optimisation
