According to the Life Safety Code R ©, the geometry of a building, the location of exits, and the number of exits dictate the means of egress for all people occupying a building. In this paper we show how evolutionary computations in the form of Genetic Algorithms and Estimation of Distribution Algorithms are used to evolve the placement of exits in order(More)
-The Nuclear Electric Vehicle Optimization Toolset (NEVOT) optimizes the design of all major nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) vehicle subsystems for a defined mission within constraints and optimization parameters chosen by a user. The tool currently uses a number of evolutionary computations (ECs) for designing NEP vehicles. Since evaluating candidate(More)
