Steady-State Vehicle Optimization using Pareto Minimum Analysis

Research Area: Research Publication Year: 1999
Type of Publication: Technical Report
Authors: Kasprzak, Edward; Milliken, Douglas; Lewis, Kemper
Designing for optimal performance across a variety of situations involves compromise decisions. Through the investigation of a two-variable optimization of a vehicle for two different \\\"races\\\" the importance of this compromise design is underscored. The use of Pareto-minimal solution techniques, borrowed from game theory, aid in the design process by limiting the number of possible compromise designs, highlighting which solution applies for a given situation and providing some insight to the sensitivity of the design
