Dakota - Soda can

Why a soda can is shaped like it is? Why a cylinder? In this video, you can find all the answers to the engineering choices underlying the design of a beverage can.



Hereafter, we go a step forward, and we use Dakota to perform this simple optimization case.  In this tutorial, we show how to formulate an optimization problem and how to use different optimization methods in Dakota.

The ingenious design of the aluminum beverage can
