High-Performance Computing for the Optimization of High-Pressure Thermal treatments in Food Industry

In Food Industry, the combined treatments based on high-pressure and temperature (HPT) are frequently used to increment the durability of the products without damaging their good properties. However, achieving a reasonable compromise between conservation and quality is usually a challenging task. In a previous work, we proposed a decision tool which solves a multi-objective optimization … Read more

A Decision Tool based on a Multi-Objective Methodology for designing High-Pressure Thermal Treatments in Food Industry

In this work, we propose a methodology for designing High-Pressure Thermal processes for food treatment. This approach is based on a multi-objective preference-based evolutionary optimization algorithm, called WASF-GA, combined with a decision strategy which provides the food engineer with the best treatment in accordance with some quality requirements. The resulting method is compared to a … Read more
