It may be interesting. You may see engineering evolution in dynamics.
There are Genetic Algorithm applications in engineering for several fields: Structural Mechanics, Irrigation, Water Supply, Theory of Elasticity with description of models and examples for real tasks with demo versions and descriptions of programs for downloador (mirror site)
NN Program Set for Optimal Design of Material Objects -
design and train Neural Network (NN) with Genetic Algorithms (GA), find optimal solution for multiobjective problem on base of NN with GA and on the base of micro-GA for a very small population of material objects with experimental results for every generation - direct measurements in the real world are used.
Tools to search for new materials and technological processes on base of laboratory measurements in evolutionary process. Demo version of NN Program Set is available for download.
Genetic Algorithm Optimization in Structural Mechanics ( 3D and 2D problems )
A genetic algorithm approach is used for optimization of space and plane frames so as to minimize the weight of the structure. Shape of frame, number and position of hinges are defined during evolution. Special loads, depending on the form and structure of frame and its elements: self-weight, wind and wave (important for derricks and offshore platforms) are available. Examples are shown for different frames. Anaglyph stereo view of results is available. Programs FrameGA 3D and FrameGA with examples for demo program download.
Use of Genetic Algorithms in Optimization of Irrigation Pumping Stations.
A genetic algorithm approach is used for the optimal design and operation of irrigation pumping stations that result in minimum design and operating cost. Demo version of program WAPIRRA is available for download.
Genetic Algorithm Optimization Of Water Supply Pumps Schedule.
Optimization of a pump scheduling system so as to minimize the cost of pumping over a 24-hour period. A pump scheduling system delivers water to a reservoir from an assumed infinite water source. Each pump may have its own characteristics. Demo version of program WPCY is available for download.
Genetic Algorithm Optimization of Pump Piston Cup.
Pumps in oil and gas industries for turbo drill driving.Initial optimum configuration of a piston cup for as much as possible uniform distributions of contact stresses during operation and erasing of a material.
