The use of computer simulations is ubiquitous in contemporary engineering design. High-fidelity numerical models are very accurate but, at the same time, computationally expensive and inherently noisy. Depending on the structure complexity and required accuracy level, evaluation time for a single design can take hours, days or even weeks. Therefore, direct use of high-fidelity simulations in the optimization loop may be prohibitive. On the other hand, in many cases, simulation-driven design is the only option due to complexity of the structure under consideration and the lack of analytical models and/or systematic design procedures. In such instances, computationally efficient design can be performed using surrogate-based optimization (SBO), where the high-fidelity model is replaced by its computationally cheap but still reasonably accurate representation, a surrogate. The surrogate model can be created using various approximation schemes. The surrogate can also be knowledge-based, i.e., constructed from the low-fidelity model that enjoys the same physics as the high-fidelity one. One of the important goals of SBO procedures is to reduce the number of high-fidelity model evaluations, and, consequently, to lower the overall optimization cost. The special session will focus on reviewing state-of-the-art and promoting new directions of surrogate-based and knowledge-based design optimization and modeling methodologies exploiting computer simulations as well as their applications in various fields of science and engineering.
This is the second edition of the SDDOM. The first edition, SDDOM 2011, took place during SIMULTECH 2011 and attracted a large number of high-quality speakers.
