Robust Optimization of NURBs Metamodels for Engineering Design
Engineering design is generally characterized as an activity where a designer compares alternative solutions to an engineering challenge in order to meet some required level of performance. Almost invariably this involves the selection of values for design variables such that the design meets performance requirements. Unfortunately, in many modern engineered products and systems the number of these design variables exceeds what an engineer may comfortably contemplate using traditional tools. Optimization tools which allow engineers to quantify and maximize performance in high-dimensional design ...
