  • Viana, Felipe A. C.   Venter, Gerhard   Balabanov, Vladimir (Wiley, 2010-04)
    This paper presents the translational propagation algorithm, a new method for obtaining optimal or near optimal Latin hypercube designs (LHDs) without using formal optimization. The procedure requires minimal computational ...
  • Muller, Regardt I   Booysen, Marthinus J. (South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics - SACAM, 2014-01)
    The availability and depletion of natural resources is increasingly punted as the limiting factor for sustainability. A lot of focus, especially in drought-stricken countries, is placed on water conservation. One way to ...
  • Venter, Gerhard   Vanderplaats, Garret N. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2009-12)
    A parallel, filter-based, sequential quadratic programming (SQP) algorithm is implemented and tested for typical general-purpose engineering applications. Constrained engineering test problems, including a finite element ...
  • Venter, Gerhard   Haftka, R. T. (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    This paper introduces an approach for dealing with constraints when using particle swarm optimization. The constrained, single objective optimization problem is converted into an unconstrained, bi-objective optimization ...
