Description

Design variables are those variables which are modified for the purposes of computing an optimal design.

The most common type of design variables encountered in engineering applications are of the continuous type. These variables may assume any real value within their bounds. All but a handful of the optimization algorithms in Dakota support continuous design variables exclusively.
