 +===== Micro-accelerometer MDO benchmark problem =====
 +
 +The zip file [[http://​se.wtb.tue.nl/​~pascal/​MicroAccelerometer/​accelerometer.zip|accelerometer.zip]] contains the Matlab implementation
 +of the micro-accelerometer MDO benchmark problem as described in the paper ([[http://​dx.doi.org/​10.1007/​s00158-009-0422-0|open access]]):
 +<​code>​
 +S. Tosserams, L.F.P. Etman, J.E. Rooda,
 +A micro-accelerometer MDO benchmark problem
 +Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization,​
 +published under open access: DOI 10.1007/​s00158-009-0422-0 .
 +</​code>​
 +We appreciate that publications describing work using this software
 +quote the reference given above.
 +
 +The main file is the file ''​accelerometer_aao.m''​. Running the main file
 +carries out 10 optimization runs starting from randomized starting points
 +and plots the best design found.
 +
 +To run the files you need the ''​fmincon''​ constrained minimizer from the
 +Matlab optimization toolbox. The Matlab implementation was developed
 +and tested for Matlab release R14.
 +
 +The micro-accelerometer benchmark may be used as an '​all-in-one'​
 +test problem for (mixed-integer) nonlinear contrained optimization ​         ​
 +algorithms, but has been primarily developed with the intention to serve 
 +as a benchmark for multidisciplinary or distributed design optimization
 +methods.
 +
 +The Matlab files were developed by Simon Tosserams in 2008
 +(s.tosserams@tue.nl). The files are made available under the
 +MIT license:
