Optimization Techniques in Material Processing

Abed Alaswad, K.Y. Benyounis, Abdul-Ghani Olabi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The objective of this chapter is to give an essential presentation on the theory and practice of implementing modeling and optimization techniques to evaluate different manufacturing process for a wide range of materials. This chapter includes comprehensive research works on the Design of Experiments (DoE), and the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) that is widely used to develop a mathematical relationship between the process input parameters and the output.
