    • An algorithm for fast optimal Latin hypercube design of experiments 

      Viana, Felipe A. C.; Venter, Gerhard; Balabanov, Vladimir (Wiley-Blackwell, 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 ...

    • Constrained particle swarm optimization using a bi-objective formulation 

      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 ...

    • A Water Flow Meter for Smart Metering Applications 

      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 ...
