CODES/ADS - A FORTRAN COntrol Program for Engineering Synthesis using the ADS optimization program
Vanderplaats, Garret N.
MetadataShow full item record
A FORTRAN Control Program for Engineering Synthesis (COPES) is presented for solving engineering design problems. This program uses the general-purpose optimization code ADS (Automated Design Synthesis) to provide a versatile design optimization capability. The program minimizes or maximizes a numerically defined objective function subject to a set of constraint limits. In addition to direct optimization, COPES includes approximation techniques as well as the capability to perform conventional parametric studies. Programming guidelines are presented, followed by sample input data and output for the various program options.
