Recent advances in surrogate-based optimization

By Alexander I.J. Forrester and Andy J. Keane


The evaluation of aerospace designs is synonymous with the use of long running computationally intensive simulations. This fuels the desire to harness the efficiency of surrogate-based methods in aerospace design optimization. Recent advances in surrogate-based design methodology bring the promise of efficient global optimization closer to reality. We review the present state of the art of constructing surrogate models and their use in optimization strategies. We make extensive use of pictorial examples and, since no method is truly universal, give guidance as to each method's strengths and weaknesses
