Optimization Technology and Applications
Date: November 10, 2016, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Automation Alley, 2675 Bellingham Dr, Troy, Michigan 48083


The purpose of this seminar is to provide a brief introduction to modern design optimization theory. We will begin with an overview of general concepts. Following this, we will discuss effective algorithms for unconstrained and constrained minimization. Examples of general applications will be offered to demonstrate the breadth of design tasks amenable to optimization. The second half of this seminar will focus on the specialized area of structural optimization. Here, we have sophisticated approximation techniques that allow us to solve very large optimization tasks for the cost of only about 15 finite element structural analyses. Examples of modern structural optimization will be presented to demonstrate the state of the art.
This seminar is intended for practitioners or potential practitioners of optimization who wish to gain a better understanding of the methods contained in our software.
