Optimization Techniques and Their Applications in Engineering

Course Description

Modelling of engineering problems and introduction of algorithms/methods for obtaining their optimal solutions. The topics include constrained and unconstrained objective functions, simplex method for linear programming, duality analysis, integer programming, mixed programming, linear and non-linear programming, sensitivity analysis, steepest decent method, conjugate gradient method, conjugate direction method, newton’s method, and Lagrange multiplier method. The use of computer software programmes (e.g., LINDO and MathCAD) for solving optimisation problems will be covered in this course also.
