In the webinar, the use of optimization techniques for engineering design will be discussed. We will begin with a review of this technology from the initial concept to modern approximation techniques. The present state of the art will be reviewed and some examples will be offered to demonstrate what is now routine. It will be seen that the state of the art in optimization technology is now reasonably mature. The challenge now is to assimilate this technology into the practicing design environment
Webinar information will be emailed to registered recipients. Due to limited availability early registration is encouraged.
