Optimization methods for Civil engineering

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

The primary objectives of the course are to introducing the students to the fundamentals of classical optimization techniques and also exposing them to the theory of different non-classical optimization methods and algorithms developed for solving various types of civil engineering optimization problems. The course will also enable the students to apply the various classical and non-classical optimization techniques in solving real-world optimization problems by using Matlab and MS Excel. At the end of this course, students will be able to understand the importance of optimization, apply basic concepts of mathematics to formulate an optimization problem, analyze and appreciate a variety of performance measures for various optimization problems. This will encourage the students to use optimization techniques in solving real-world civil engineering design and planning problems and will promote research interest in optimization techniques.INTENDED AUDIENCE : PG Students, Research Scholar and B.
