It is vitally important to meet or exceed previous quality and reliability standards while at the same time reducing resource consumption. This textbook addresses this critical imperative integrating theory, modeling, the development of numerical methods, and problem solving, thus preparing the student to apply optimization to real-world problems. This text covers a broad variety of optimization problems using: unconstrained, constrained, gradient, and non-gradient techniques; duality concepts; multiobjective optimization; linear, integer, geometric, and dynamic programming with applications; and finite element-based optimization. In this revised and enhanced second edition of Optimization Concepts and Applications in Engineering, the already robust pedagogy has been enhanced with more detailed explanations, an increased number of solved examples and end-of-chapter problems. The source codes are now available free on multiple platforms. It is ideal for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses and for practicing engineers in all engineering disciplines, as well as in applied mathematics.

From the Back Cover: This new hands-on book focuses on the implementation of optimization in engineering. Offering a strong foundation and coverage of theory, this new book provides the student with experiential learning through its special attention to implementation as well as its accompanying computer programs all on a single platform—on disk. Features reliable and tested computer programs of real-world optimization problems that include discussion and programs on shape and topology optimization of structures not found in other books. Includes various exercise problems and solved examples. Offers detailed discussion of algorithms, their implementation and computer programs with source code. With its emphasis on implementation and availability of computer programs, this book will be useful to those in this industry, including researchers and practicing engineers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
