Product Overview

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to mathematical and algorithmic methods for the Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) of complex mechanical systems such as aircraft or car engines.

The authors focus on the presentation of strategies efficiently and economically, managing the different levels of complexity in coupled disciplines (e.g. structure, fluid, thermal, acoustics, etc.), ranging from Reduced Order Models (ROM) to full scale Finite Element (FE) or Finite Volume (FV) simulations. Particular focus is gien to uncertainty quantification and its impact on the robustness of the optimal designs. A large collection of examples from academia, software editing and industry should also help the reader to develop a practical insight on MDO methods.

It is assumed that the reader has had some previous exposure to computational mechanics and optimization, but prior formal coursework in basic optimization algorithms and simulation methods is not essential, as the concepts are introduced progressively throughout the text.

The book makes an ideal reference or self-study aid in an academic or practitioner setting, and may be used in a graduate-level course on MDO for students, engineers and researchers, and in industrial short courses and seminars for a wide variety of technical backgrounds.
