Neural network-assisted constraint handling in evolutionary optimization algorithms

One of our research topics is on improving the performance of evolutionary (and swarm) optimization algorithms – here we propose a method to make them more efficient when dealing with complex structural problems.

Group dinner

Our long awaited group dinner finally happened on December 17, 2021.

Mechanics of multifunctional panels and materials

We work on modeling vibrations and buckling of orthotropic and anisotropic beams and plates. Structures in focus include prismatic sandwich panels, functionally graded solids, functionally graded porous materials and stiffened panels. Beside mechanical loads, we are modeling the effects of thermal loads that arise as a result of sudden temperature changes.
