Abstract

The shape optimization of mechanical and automotive component plays a crucial role in the development of auto-motive technology. Presently, the use of derivative-free metaheuristics in combination with finite element analysis for mechanical component design is one of the most focused on topics due to its simplicity and effectiveness. In this research paper, the mine blast algorithm (MBA) is used to solve the problem of shape optimization for a vehicle door hinge to prove how the MBA can be used for solving shape optimization problems in designing electrical vehicles. The results show the advantage of the MBA for designing optimal components in the automotive industry.
