Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to give an overview of evolutionary algorithms and describe a particular multi-objective EA (MOEA) named Hierarchical Asynchronous Parallel Evolutionary Algorithms (HAPEA) and its application to aeronautical design and optimisation problems. The first chapter provides an overview of evolutionary algorithms introduces the main advantages of this derivative free approach and details the HAPEA method. Then the paper focuses on the application of the method to mathematical test problems for which non-dominated solutions of the Pareto front are known. Finally several practical examples illustrate the potential of the method, related to conceptual and detailed multi objective and multi disciplinary design problems in aeronautics.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
