×A6. Modelling, simulation and optimisation in engineering

In recent years, the use of Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation techniques in engineering has accelerated with the advances in computational methods and resources. Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation has become an important part of the research repertoire, supplementing and in some cases replacing lengthy experimentation procedures.

Engineering parameters are difficult to predict and analyse before prototyping but modern modelling, simulation and optimisation packages can replicate the actual phenomena in less time and cost. Modelling and simulation focuses on optimising and predicting the performance and reducing the costs of complex systems that may involve multiple interacting disciplines, such as those found in automobiles, aircrafts, spacecrafts, industrial and manufacturing equipment, and engineering operations.

The purpose of this session is to bring together users, developers, and researchers in engineering industry to present the latest theoretical and computational developments, applications, ideas, and problems related to Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation. Papers may present innovative models, methods or the problem of solving engineering problems.

The multidisciplinary nature of this session invites papers on Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation models, methods and approaches with applications in the various disciplines of engineering including but not limited to Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Engineering Operations, Aerospace Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Bio-Medical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Renewable energy.

Key topics: Optimisation, Modelling, Engineering, Heuristic optimisation methods
