Multi-Fidelity Shape Optimization and Robustness Analysis for Impact

In recent years, Robust Design Optimization became an independent field of research addressing the problem that standard optimization often makes the design more sensitive to unavoidable fluctuations in design and/or noise variables. New approaches are derived here to handle the high complexity and effort especially if robustness is included. Hierarchical and hybrid methods are adapted for application in highly non-linear transient dynamic problems.
