Engineering Optimisation with Evolutionary Computation

Asanga Ratnaweera , Saman K. Halgamuge, Harry C. Watson


This paper presents a review of various types of evolutionary optimisation methods available for real-world systems optimisation. Initially, we report a brief overview on some evolutionary optimisation methods, their developments and applicability on engineering problems. A comparison of the performance of two di erent optimisation techniques on well known benchmarks are also presented. A review on real-world applications of evolutionary optimisation methods are also provided.
