We work in a similar area, but we use commercial FE-programms for
The easiest way is to call the programms via script (because of better
modularity). The FE-Programm have to support a Batch-mode run, of course. Our
GAlib objective funktion simply reads the fitness from a file.

The FE analysis is very time consuming. So you have to simplify your model
to get suitable evaluation times. At this point your know-how is needed.
