Optimization Methods for Engineering Design
by A.R. Parkinson, R.J. Balling, J.D. Hedengren
Publisher: Brigham Young University 2013
Number of pages: 208
In this text we discuss a computer-based approach to design optimization. With this approach, we use the computer to search for the best design according to criteria that we specify. Further, we employ sophisticated algorithms that enable the computer to efficiently search for the optimum.
