Evolutionary Design of Engineering Constructions

Abstract The basic information required to utilize one of possible computation tools/algorithms (mainly the evolution strategy) to solve a wide class of real practical engineering optimization problems is presented and discussed in the present paper. The effectiveness of the considered method is demonstrated by the possibility of the use of different form of objective functions, various and numerous nonlinear constraints and different types of design variables (continuous, discrete, real, integer). The sensitivity of the algorithm to the choice of the evolution strategy parameters is also dis...
