  1. 1. Ride Comfort Optimization of Buses

    Författare :Peter Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :structural vibrations; FEM; global optimization; ride comfort; roll control system; MBS; optimization; bus; road irregularities; sensitivity analysis;

    Sammanfattning : As the design of buses is constantly improving, passengers are becoming more fastidious and the demand for a more comfortable travelling environment is constantly increasing. The main objective of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of how the design of buses affects the ride comfort characteristics. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Product Configuration from a Mathematical Optimization Perspective

    Författare :Peter Lindroth; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; optimization; multiple objectives; platform-based products; heavy-duty trucks; configuration management; categorical variables; global optimization; robustness; categorical variables;

    Sammanfattning : The optimal truck configuration for a certain customer is very specific and depends on for what transport mission and in which operating environment the truck is to be used. In addition, the customers normally specify other feature requirements ranging from visual appearance to advanced driver support systems. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On Models and Methods for Global Optimization of Structural Topology

    Författare :Mathias Stolpe; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :topology optimization; global optimization; stress constraints; linear programming; mixed integer programming; branch-and-bound;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of an introduction and sevenindependent, but closely related, papers which all deal withproblems in structural optimization. In particular, we considermodels and methods for global optimization of problems intopology design of discrete and continuum structures. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Small-Scale Decentralized Energy Systems : optimization and performance analysis

    Författare :Sara Ghaem Sigarchian; Viktoria Martin; Anders Malmquist; Erik Dahlquist; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Small-scale polygeneration energy systems; techno-economic optimization; renewable energy; operating strategy; particle swarm optimization; optimization algorithm; decentralized energy system;

    Sammanfattning : Small-scale polygeneration energy systems, providing multiple energy services, such as heating, electricity, cooling, and clean water, using multiple energy sources (renewable and non-renewable) are considered an important component in the energy transition movement. Exploiting locally available energy sources and providing energy services close to the end users have potential environmental, economic, and societal benefits. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Asynchronous Algorithms for Large-Scale Optimization : Analysis and Implementation

    Författare :Arda Aytekin; Mikael Johansson; Panagiotis K. Patrinos; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; convex optimization; optimization; asynchronous algorithms; algorithms; parallel algorithms; large-scale; big data; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis proposes and analyzes several first-order methods for convex optimization, designed for parallel implementation in shared and distributed memory architectures. The theoretical focus is on designing algorithms that can run asynchronously, allowing computing nodes to execute their tasks with stale information without jeopardizing convergence to the optimal solution.
