• Efficient optimisation of structures using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Seffen, KA; Clarkson, PJ; Parks, GT (MCB University Press, 1999)
      This paper presents a novel approach to the optimisation of structures using a Tabu search (TS) method. TS is a metaheuristic which is used to guide local search methods towards a globally optimal solution by using flexible ...
    • Multiobjective optimisation of bicycle frames using simulated annealing

      Suppapitnarm, A; Seffen, KA; Parks, GT; Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ (Association for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization in the UK (ASMO-UK), 1999)
      The paper describes a novel implementation of the Simulated Annealing algorithm designed to explore the trade-off surface in multiobjective optimisation problems, in which an appropriate annealing temperature is determined ...
