Most optimization problems do not consider tolerance of design variables and design parameters. Ignorance of these tolerances may not fit for the practical problems and can lead to an unexpected conclusion. That is why we suggest robust optimization considering tolerances in both design variables and problem parameters. Using robust optimization, we designed minimum weight annular finned heat transfer tube subject to constraints on limitation of pressure difference and minimum value of total heat transfer. Consequently, robust optimization satisfies tolerance considered practical problems.
