• Engineering design optimisation using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ; Shahpar, S; Leonard, PJ (Professional Engineering Publishing, 2000)
      This paper describes an optimisation methodology that has been specifically developed for engineering design problems. The methodology is based on a Tabu search (TS) algorithm that has been shown to find high quality ...
    • Pole shape optimization using a tabu search scheme

      Connor, AM; Leonard, PJ (IEEE, 2000)
      The pole shape optimization of an electromagnet typical of an MRI type application is investigated. We compare the use of different parameterizations of the pole shape and compare the convergence of the optimizations using ...
