Many metamodeling techniques have been developed in the past two decades to reduce the computational cost of design evaluation. With the increasing scale and complexity of engineering problems, popular metamodeling techniques including artificial neural network (ANN), Polynomial regression (PR), Kriging (KG), radial basis functions (RBF), and multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS) face difficulties in solving highly nonlinear problems, such as the crashworthiness design. Therefore, in this work, we integrate the least support vector regression (LSSVR) with the mode pursuing sampling (MPS) optimization method and applied the integrated approach for crashworthiness design. The MPS is used for generating new samples which are concentrated near the current local minima at each iteration and yet still statistically cover the entire design space. The LSSVR is used for establishing a more robust metamodel from noisy data. Therefore, the proposed method integrates the advantages of both the LSSVR and MPS to more efficiently achieve reasonably accurate results. In order to verify the proposed method, well-known highly nonlinear functions are used for testing. Finally, the proposed method is applied to three typical crashworthiness optimization cases. The results demonstrate the potential capability of this method in the crashworthiness design of vehicles.
