A Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm for Jacket Optimization
MetadataVis full innførsel
In this paper, we describe underlying concepts related to the problem of jacket design as well as previous research on jacket design optimization. Motivated by the complexity of the problem, including the multiple objectives typically involved, we develop a novel multi-objective genetic algorithm, NSGA-J, which is tailored to jacket design optimization. NSGA-J is based on the prominent Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II), but tailors it to the problem of designing jackets. Experimentally, we study a cloud-based implementation of NSGA-J and present our results and experiences. The paper ends with a discussion of lessons learned and sketches opportunities for future research. We hope to inspire future work on complex applications of structural design optimization including jacket design optimization.
