An Evolutionary Lagrange Method for Mechanical Design

Abstract:

Article Preview

A novel application to mechanical optimal design is presented in this paper. Here, an evolutionary algorithm, called mixed-integer differential evolution (MIHDE), is used to solve general mixed-integer optimization problems. However, most of real-world mixed-integer optimization problems frequently consist of equality and/or inequality constraints. In order to effectively handle constraints, an evolutionary Lagrange method based on MIHDE is implemented to solve the mixed-integer constrained optimization problems. Finally, the evolutionary Lagrange method is applied to a mechanical design problem. The satisfactory results are achieved, and demonstrate that the evolutionary Lagrange method can effectively solve the optimal mechanical design problem.
