Abstract:

In this report, a new formulation, called parametric optimal design, has been introduced. The generality of the problem formulation is shown in relation to several classes of classical optimization problems. A first order algorithm has been developed. Test problems from various fields such as finite allocation problem, vibration isolator design, dynamical system design and structural design problem, have been solved, showing practicability of the algorithm developed here.
