Optimization of Mechanical Systems


Lecture Optimization of Mechanical Systems

Winter term
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Prof. E.h. Peter Eberhard

Lecture content

This course focuses on parameter optimization problems in mechanical systems. All necessary steps from the problem statement to its numerical solution are presented. Important topics are multicriteria optimization, sensitivity analysis as well as deterministic and stochastic optimization algorithms without and with constraints. The lecture is accompanied by exercises and computer demonstrations.
