Welcome to the ASMDO homepage

The integration of computer aided design methods together with optimization techniques is becoming prevalent in all aspects of industry and research. Engineering design is enhanced by increasing the efficiency of the simulate problems and innovative optimization methods. After the success of JOPTI 2005 ( Journée sur les strategies d'optimisation ) workshop that was held in Besançon (France) 19 th May 2005 , we have remarked that there exist a gaps between researchers in the universities and industrial needs especially concerning the use of the optimization strategies. Then the Association for Simulation and Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (ASMDO) was founded to promote further activities in this field. An executive committee was created by al least half of the members coming from industries. The aims of ASMDO are then:

  1. To identify and create international collaborations between persons, organizations or institutions that have among their activities, at least one related to Simulation, Modelling or Optimization.
  2. To provide a framework for the organization of study seminars, forums, conferences, workshops and congress either national or international to communicate recent advances and to demonstrate how developed techniques can be applied in engineering practice. 
  3. To encourage practical applications of optimization methods and the corresponding software development in all branches of technology and to foster the interchange of ideas amongst various fields contributing to structural optimization.

In the framework of simulation and multidisciplinary optimization there are many subjects concerned:

Parameter Identification, Computational Methods, Optimization Techniques, Simulation of Multi-Physics Problems, Optimal Design, Shape and Topology Optimization, Multiobjective Optimization, Finite Element Method, Software, Benchmarks, Large Scale Problems, Evolutionary Strategies, Simulated Annealing, Artificial Neural Networks, Structural Analysis, Operations Research, Dynamic Response, Heat Transfer, Tribology, Sensitivity Analysis, CFD, Noise&Vibration, Composites Modelling, Biomechanics, Control of Structures, Clustering,….etc

And following domains are concerned with the industrial applications:

Aeronautics and Space Technology, Vehicle Design and Transport, Industrial Forming Processes, Geomechanics and Environmental Engineering, Naval Architecture, Engineering Structures, Commercial Software, Software Reliability, Communications, Biomechanic , Economics, …..etc.
