Reliability analysis and optimization of ADAS systems
The validation of ADAS systems today is still a difficult task to achieve as it is unclear what the load cases getting the system to fault are considering that the ADAS system needs to be operational all the time, not to mention the need to fulfil the Euro NCAP requirements. It is therefore mandatory to develop a simulations approach in which the ADAS control systems, integrated with sensors and actuators, vehicle dynamics, inter-vehicle behavior and traffic environment are simulated.
Influence of actual component characteristics on the optimal energy mix of a photovoltaic-wind-diesel hybrid system for a remote off-grid application
Hybrid energy systems are an interesting solution for the electrification of remote, off-grid users, which usually are obligated to satisfy their electricity demand by means of quite old technologies, like for example diesel generators. In the present study, a sizing strategy was developed based on a long-term energy production cost analysis, able to predict the optimum configuration of a hybrid PV-wind-diesel stand-alone system. The approach was tested on an isolated mountain chalet in Italian Alps.
Multidisciplinary Optimization of Unmanned Aircraft Considering radar signature sensors and trajectory constraints
The optimization problem of the present case study is about improving the radar signature and sensor capabilities of the aircraft while at the same time ensuring that it can perform well in the given mission profile and that it has acceptable flying characteristics.
Optimization of air distribution mode coupled interior design for civil aircraft cabin
The airflow distribution and thermal comfort of human beings in civil aircraft cabin are influenced by many factors such as the ventilation mode, ventilation air volume, and supply air temperature and so on. Among these factors, the choice of ventilation mode in the civil aircraft cabin is also restricted by the interior and aesthetic designs.
Hull surface modification for ship resistance performance optimization based on delaunay triangulation
The hull surface modification method plays a vital role in ship hydrodynamic performance optimization, and should meet the following requirements:in order to save optimization time, hull surface modification should be achieved using few design parameters; the modification range of the hull form should be sufficiently large; the local modified hull surface should have a fairing connection with other parts of the hull surface; the optimal hull form should be suitable for applying to manufacturing.
structural design exploration of high rise design concepts using genetic algorithms
The adoption of optimization algorithms has been slower in conceptual design compared to the later design phases. The choices made during the conceptual design phase have a large impact on the performance of the result. This research aims to find out why it is so hard to use optimization in conceptual design.

Self-organizing maps for pattern recognition in design of alloys
A work plan is created for the efficient use of a set of computational tools for the design of AlNiCo-type permanent magnetic alloys with the objective of simultaneously extremizing several magnetic properties. Self-organizing maps (SOM) were used to discover various patterns within the dataset using optimization software modeFRONTIER.
