Discription

Opti 3: Implements a new deterministic DIRECT algorithm and it converges much faster than does Simulated Annealing. Several modifictions have also been made to the DIRECT algorithm to improve its efficiency and flexibility, including three locally biased variations , new geometric constraints and modifications to handle the manufacturing tolerance and the hidden constraints. The DIRECT algorithm is found to be superior to the Simulated Annealing algorithm in slider ABS optimization. Coded in C and distributed with executable file. Several matlab programs are also included for the pre-processing and post-processing purposes.

CMLOpt: A user interface that allows the user to quickly create successful optimization cases.

Discription

Implements more powerful Adaptive Simulated Annealing algorithm as well as other variations in the Simulated Annealing family. Both CML rectangular mesh solver Quick4 and triangular mesh solver Quick5 can be used to evaluate the sample ABS designs generated by the simulated annealing algorithm. Coded by C and distributed with executable file. Several matlab programs are also included for the post-processing purpose.
