Optimization is a branch of applied mathematics that has been researched and applied to engineering design. Suitable for use in a first course on engineering design and optimization, this book describes the basic concepts and techniques with only a few simple applications.





Introduction to Optimum Design 3e describes an organized approach to engineering design optimization in a rigorous yet simplified manner. It illustrates various concepts and procedures with simple examples and demonstrates their applicability to engineering design problems. Formulation of a design problem as an optimization problem is emphasized and illustrated throughout the text. Excel and MATLAB are featured as learning and teaching aids. * Basic concepts of optimality conditions and numerical methods are described with simple and practical examples, making the material highly teachable and learnable* Includes applications of optimization methods for structural, mechanical, aerospace, and industrial engineering problems* Introduction to MATLAB Optimization Toolbox* Practical design examples introduce students to the use of optimization methods early in the book* New example problems throughout the text are enhanced with detailed illustrations* Optimum design with Excel Solver has been expanded into a full chapter* New chapter on several advanced optimum design topics serves the needs of instructors who teach more advanced courses
