Optimal Design of Transmission Shafts: a Continuous Genetic Algorithm Approach
AbstractThis paper presents an analysis of the optimal design of transmission shafts by adopting the approach of a novel continuous genetic algorithm. The optimization case study is formulated as a single-objective optimization problem whose objective function is the minimization of the total weight that results from the sum of all the sections in the shaft.Additionally, mechanical stresses and constructive characteristics are considered constraints in this case.Theproposedoptimizationmodel corresponds to a nonlinear non-convex optimization problem which is numerically solved with a continuous variant of genetic algorithms. SKYCIV®and Autodesk Inventor®were used to verify the quality and robustness of the numerical results in this paper by means of simulation tools and analysis. The results obtained demonstrates that the methodology proposed reduce the complexity and improving the results obtained in comparison to conventional mechanical design.
