Surrogate models expedite the search for promising designs bystanding in for expensive design evaluations or simulations. Theyprovide a global model of some metric of a design (such as weight,aerodynamic drag, cost, etc.), which can then be optimizedefficiently.
Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling is aself-contained guide to surrogate models and their use inengineering design. The fundamentals of building, selecting,validating, searching and refining a surrogate are presented in amanner accessible to novices in the field. Figures are usedliberally to explain the key concepts and clearly show thedifferences between the various techniques, as well as to emphasizethe intuitive nature of the conceptual and mathematical reasoningbehind them.
More advanced and recent concepts are each presented instand-alone chapters, allowing the reader to concentrate onmaterial pertinent to their current design problem, and conceptsare clearly demonstrated using simple design problems. Thiscollection of advanced concepts (visualization, constrainthandling, coping with noisy data, gradient-enhanced modelling,multi-fidelity analysis and multiple objectives) represents aninvaluable reference manual for engineers and researchers active inthe area.
Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling iscomplemented by a suite of Matlab codes, allowing the reader toapply all the techniques presented to their own design problems. Byapplying statistical modelling to engineering design, this bookbridges the wide gap between the engineering and statisticscommunities. It will appeal to postgraduates and researchers acrossthe academic engineering design community as well as practisingdesign engineers.
* Provides an inclusive and practical guide to using surrogatesin engineering design.
* Presents the fundamentals of building, selecting, validating,searching and refining a surrogate model.
* Guides the reader through the practical implementation of asurrogate-based design process using a set of case studies fromreal engineering design challenges.

Dr. Alexander I. J. Forrester is Lecturer in EngineeringDesign at the University of Southampton. His main area of researchfocuses on improving the efficiency with which expensive analysis(particularly computational fluid dynamics) is used in design. Histechniques have been applied to wing aerodynamics, satellitestructures, sports equipment design and Formula One.
Dr Andras Sobester is a Lecturer and EPSRC/ Royal Academyof Engineering research Fellow in the School of EngineeringSciences at the University of Southampton. His research interestsinclude aircraft design, aerodynamic shape parameterization andoptimization, as well as engineering design technology ingeneral.
Professor Andy J. Keane currently holds the Chair ofComputational Engineering at the University of Southampton. Heleads the University's Computational Engineering at the DesignResearch Group and directs the rolls-Royce University Technologycentre for Computational Engineering. His interests lie primarilyin the aerospace sciences, with a focus on the design ofaerospace systems using computational methods. He has publishedover two hundred papers and three books in this area, many of whichdeal with surrogate modelling concepts. - Newsletter
