Advancing Robust Multi-Objective Optimisation Applied to Complex Model-Based Water-Related Problems. Promotor 1: Prof.dr. D.P. Solomatine (CiTG/UNESCO-IHE); 

In this thesis a framework for robust optimisation of multiple objectives and multiple sources of uncertainty is proposed, named as Robust Optimisation and Probabilistic Analysis of Robustness algorithm (ROPAR). The framework, which integrates widely accepted robustness metrics, is tested in engineering problems related to the water sector, in particular the design of urban drainage and water distribution systems.

ROPAR allows for employing practically any existing multi-objective optimisation algorithm as its internal optimisation engine, which enables its applicability to other problems as well. Additionally, ROPAR can be straightforwardly parallelized, allowing for fast availability of results.
