Abstract

This paper describes the use of an evolutionary algorithm to solve an engineering design problem. The problem involves determining the geometry and operating settings for a crusher in a comminution circuit for ore processing. The intention is to provide a tool for consulting engineers that can be used to explore candidate designs for various scenarios. The algorithm has proved capable of deriving designs that are clearly superior to existing designs, promising significant financial benefits
