Optimization of Material Properties Using Genetic Algorithms
The genetic algorithm method was used in the present work as an alternative to classical calculation methods. It can be used in the situations where we search an optimal solution and a problem has many variable parameters. In this work the genetic algorithm method was applied in order to decompose the texture function into ideal components and also to optimize elastic constants by an appropriate choice of texture function. These example applications of genetic algorithm method show its potential in the field of material engineering.
