Optimization of a Cam by a Genetic Algorithm 2002-01-3565

Using a Simple Genetic Algorithm, the present paper obtains the optimal geometry of a cam with roll follower. In order to evaluate cam performance, an objective function which takes into account the influence of the inertia, the perimeter and of the pressure angle is proposed. The choice for a Genetic Algorithm is justified because, in preliminary tests, the objective function had proven to be multimodal
