AAE 55000 - Multidisciplinary Design Optimization

Credit Hours: 3.00. Basics of numerical optimization: problem formulation, conditions of optimality, search direction, and step length. Calculus-based techniques for univariate and multivariate optimization. Constrained and unconstrained optimization methods. Global optimization methods. Multi-objective optimization: Pareto optimality and approaches. Recent multidisciplinary design optimization techniques: approximations, response surface methodology, and collaborative optimization. Applications of various methods and techniques to representative engineering problems, culminating in a final project. Ability to solve mathematical problems with MATLAB and IMSL and similar software helpful. Typically offered Fall.
