Fortran optimisation package containing routines
and shell scripts for parallel global multi-start
optimisation, more specifically simulation based
The problem is fitting mechanical behaviour of materials
from FE simulation of a range of tests, initially buckling
of cylindrical rods.
The objective function is based on sum of squares of the
residuals between experimental and FE load/displacement data.
