Abstract:

This report describes the use of computer program SEEK which works in conjunction with two user-written subroutines and an input data file to perform an optimization procedure on a users problem. The optimization method uses a modified feasible directions gradient technique. SEEK is written in ANSI standard Fortran 77, has an object size of about 46 K bytes and can be used on a personal computer running DOS. This report describes the use of the program and discusses the optimizing method. The program use is illustrated with four example problems a bushing design, a helical coil spring design, a gear mesh design and a two-parameter Weibull life-reliability curve fit.
