The numerical optimization of practical applications has been an issue of major importance for the last 10 years. It allows us to explore reliable non-trivial configurations, differing widely from all known solutions. The purpose of this book is to introduce the state-of-the-art concerning this issue and many complementary applications are presented.Table 7.1 Examples of drag coefficient of old or modern cars Car Cd Ford T (1908 ) 0.8 Hummer H2 (2003) 0.57 Citroen SM (1970) ... Such a large value justifies the interest of a numerical modelization of the problem in order to find numericallyanbsp;...
