An Approach for Building a Rule-Based System for Design Optimization.
A strategy for design optimization for nonlinearly constrained problems is presented. The strategy combines techniques used in production rule systems with an optimization procedure dealing with local monotonicity and ...
Design Optimization of Spur Gear Sets.
Design optimization problems are typically characterized by a large number of inequality constraints, many of them satisfied as equalities at the optimum. To take advantage of this tact, we have used an augmented Lagrangian ...
Optimal Design Using Decomposition Methods.
In this paper, a unified review of eight decomposition methods is presented. A two-level decomposition method is proposed, which is an extension of feasible model coordination methods. The method couples the global ...
