The present paper is devoted to the study of design optimization strategies in the particular framework of complex computational fluid dynamics. Genetic algorithms are chosen as the optimization strategy, thanks to their robustness and flexibility. Two ways are explored to improve the behavior of genetic algorithms in order to increase the efficiency of the search. First, approximated preevaluations based on artificial neural networks are used to benefit from the knowledge acquired from the… CONTINUE READING
