Abstract:   (1876 Views)
Deterring the optimum design of large-scale structures is a difficult task. Great number of design variables, largeness of the search space and controlling great number of design constraints are major preventive factors in performing optimum design of large-scale truss structures in a reasonable time. Meta-heuristic algorithms are known as one of the useful tools to deal with these problems. This paper presents an improved bat algorithm for optimizing large-scale structures. The capability of the algorithm is examined by comparing the resulting design parameters and structural weight with those of other methods from literature.
