Computer aided innovaton of crankshafts using Genetic Algorithms Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • In this paper a method is described for determining the design unbalance of crankshafts and also the recommended procedure for a balanced design strategy. The use of a search tool for solutions is suggested based on Genetic Algorithms (GA). GAs have been used in different applications, one of them is the optimization of geometric shapes, a relatively recent area with high research potential. The interest towards this field is growing, and it is anticipated that in the future mechanical engineering will be an area where many applications of shape optimization will be widely applied. © 2006 International Federation for Information Processing.
