COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course begins with an introduction to optimization-driven design and how it is used in industrial contexts, this is followed by solution methods for optimization problems in a variable. These introductory parts of the course deal with unlimited optimization and the focus is on creating a variety of solution methods for different types of optimization problems. Examples of solution methods that are treated are linear programming (LP), Newton's method, secant methods and the steepest descent method. In these latter methods, problems are considered in several variables, which also applies to the remaining parts of the course.

For limited optimization problems, different methods for handling coercion are presented, for example Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT), quadratic programming (QP), active quantities and multipliers. The course continues with convex optimization and variation differences with application in mechanical engineering and ends with structure, shape and topology optimization.

After completed course the student should be able to:
show familiarity with basic optimization algorithms and their use,
display knowledge about how structural and design optimization can be used during the design process,
demonstrate comprehension of how optimization driven design is used in the development of sustainable products,
demonstrate the ability to use topology optimization in structural analyses,
demonstrate the ability to perform sensitivity analyses,
demonstrate the ability to perform a major optimization driven design project.
