Applicability of Hooke’s and Jeeves Direct Search Solution Method to Metal cutting [Turning] Operation. (140075)


Abstract : Role of optimization in engineering design is prominent one with the advent of computers. Optimization has become a part of computer aided design activities. It is prima rily being used in those design activities in which the goal is not only to achieve just a feasible design,but also a des ign objective. In most engineering design activities,the design objective could be simply to minimize the cost of production or to maximize the efficiency of the production. An optimization algorithm is a procedure which is executed it eratively by comparing various solutions till the optimum or a satisfactory solution is found. In many industri al design activities,optimization is achieved indirectly by comparing a few chosen design solutions and accept ing the best solution. This simplistic approach never guarantees and optimization algorithms being with one or more d esign solutions supplied by the user and then iteratively check new design the true optimum solution. There ar e two distinct types of optimization algorithms which are in use today. First there are algorithms which are deterministic,with specific rules for moving from one solution to the other secondly,there are algorithms whi ch are stochastic transition rules. An important aspect of the optimal design process is the formulation of the design problem in a mathematical format which is acceptable to an optimization algorithm. Above mentioned theory (tasks) involve either minimization or maximization of an objectives. Mathematically programming techni ques are useful in finding the minimum of a function of several variables under a prescribed set of constraints . Stochastic process techniques can be used to analyze problems described by a set of random variables having known probability distributions statistical methods enable one to analyze the experimental data and build empiric al models to obtain the most accurate representation of the physical situation. The purpose of the optimizati on is to determine such a set of the cutting conditions v (cutting speed),f (feed rate),a (depth of cut),that satisfies the limitation equations and balances the conflicting objectives. Current study presents successful optimiza tion using Hooks and Jeeves method for metal cutting process with the help of MATLAB R2014a(version 8.3).
