Info: Summary of an optimisation project. |
Analysis: Include all analysis needed for the optimisation. |
Table: Define tables with bundled data, will be used together with Table variable below. Can be used for material, beam section or any selection variable. |
Design
variables |
Slave variable: Is a mathematical expression of primary design variables which can be used in the optimisation formulation. |
Table variable: Is used together with "Table" above. The variable is a pointer to a row in the table. Used for different kind of selection variables. For example material or beam section selection. |
Objective function: Is formulated as one or more function of variables and/or output data from included analysis. If several function is defined the problem will be solved as a MinMax problem. Typical used for minimze maximum stresses in a region. |
Constraint: Defined by variables and/or output data from included analysis. Could be of type <,> or = .< /FONT >< /FONT > |
Execution: Set up optimisation parameters and start optimisation. Deafult values works fine in most cases. |
Results |
Variables: Monitoring design variables during optimisation. |
Derivatives: Monitoring derivatives for objective function and constraints with respect to variables. |
Log file: Just a log of an ongoing optimisation. |
