Principles of Optimal Design : Modeling and Computation Hardback
Design optimization is a standard concept in engineering design, and in other disciplines which utilize mathematical decision-making methods.
This textbook focuses on the close relationship between a design problem's mathematical model and the solution-driven methods which optimize it.
Along with extensive material on modeling problems, this book also features useful techniques for checking whether a model is suitable for computational treatment.
Throughout, key concepts are discussed in the context of why and when a particular algorithm may be successful, and a large number of examples demonstrate the theory or method right after it is presented.
This book also contains step-by-step instructions for executing a design optimization project - from building the problem statement to interpreting the computer results.
All chapters contain exercises from which instructors can easily build quizzes, and a chapter on 'principles and practice' offers the reader tips and guidance based on the authors' vast research and instruction experience.
