Design and optimization of shell and tube heat exchanger (STHX) is a challenging task for engineers. Often the optimization search space is multidimensional and several design requirements and variable limits have to be addressed. This paper introduces a new approach for integrating design efficiency constraint into the optimization cost-based objective(More)
This brief proposes an efficient technique for the construction of optimized prediction intervals (PIs) by using the bootstrap technique. The method employs an innovative PI-based cost function in the training of neural networks (NNs) used for estimation of the target variance in the bootstrap method. An optimization algorithm is developed for minimization(More)
