Title Engineering design optimization / Joaquim R. R. A. Martins, Andrew Ning
Published Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2022


Description 1 online resource (ix, 637 pages) : PDF file(s)
Contents A short history of optimization -- Numerical models and solvers -- Unconstrained gradient-based optimization -- Constrained gradient-based optimization -- Computing derivatives -- Gradient-free optimization -- Discrete optimization -- Multiobjective optimization -- Surrogate-based optimization -- Convex optimization -- Optimization under uncertainty -- Multidisciplinary design optimization
Summary Based on course-tested material, this rigorous yet accessible graduate textbook covers both fundamental and advanced optimization theory and algorithms. It covers a wide range of numerical methods and topics, including both gradient-based and gradient-free algorithms, multidisciplinary design optimization, and uncertainty, with instruction on how to determine which algorithm should be used for a given application. It also provides an overview of models and how to prepare them for use with numerical optimization, including derivative computation. Over 400 high-quality visualizations and numerous examples facilitate understanding of the theory, and practical tips address common issues encountered in practical engineering design optimization and how to address them. Numerous end-of-chapter homework problems, progressing in difficulty, help put knowledge into practice. Accompanied online by a solutions manual for instructors and source code for problems, this is ideal for a one- or two-semester graduate course on optimization in aerospace, civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering departments
