Structural optimisation is an essential tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the building and transportation sectors. Many finite element models used for simulation are computationally expensive and are called “black- box” because of their lack of derivative information. This limits the applicability of many gradient-based methods. Bayesian optimisation is a “data-driven” approach used to efficiently optimise “black-box” objective functions that are computationally expensive to evaluate. Structural optimisation problems can be high-dimensional and scaling Bayesian optimisation to such settings remains a barrier to its wide-spread use in practice. This project aims to explore how Bayesian optimisation can be used to solve high- dimensional structural optimisation problems.
