Optimization Concepts and Applications in Engineering
Prentice Hall, 1999 - Technology & Engineering - 432 pages
This new hands-on book focuses on the implementation of optimization in engineering. Offering a strong foundation and coverage of theory, this new book provides the student with experiential learning through its special attention to implementation as well as its accompanying computer programs all on a single platform?on disk. Features reliable and tested computer programs of real-world optimization problems that include discussion and programs on shape and topology optimization of structures not found in other books. Includes various exercise problems and solved examples. Offers detailed discussion of algorithms, their implementation and computer programs with source code. With its emphasis on implementation and availability of computer programs, this book will be useful to those in this industry, including researchers and practicing engineers.
