The paper is devoted to the optimization of the microstructure parameters of a porous medium under thermo-mechanical loading. Four different criteria related to the properties of the porous material have been proposed and numerically implemented. To solve a multiobjective problem, a novel method based on the coupling of differential evolution and elements of game theory is used. The proposed algorithm features an appropriate balance between exploration and exploitation of objective space, which is necessary for the successful optimization of these types of tasks with the use of numerical simulations. The model of the thermo-elastic porous material is composed of two-scale direct analysis based on a numerical homogenization. Direct thermoelastic analysis with representative volume element (RVE) and finite element method (FEM) is performed. Numerical example of the optimization illustrating the usefulness of the proposed method is included.
