Abstract:   (1636 Views)

Beginning  in  2011  an  international  academic  contest  named  as  International  Student Competition  in  Structural  Optimization  (ISCSO)  has  been  organized  by  the  authors  to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to solve structural engineering optimization problems. During the past events on the one hand a unique platform is provided for a fair comparison of structural optimization algorithms; and on the other hand it is attempted to draw  the  attention  of  students  to  the  interesting  and  joyful  aspects  of  dealing  with optimization problems. This year, after five online events successfully held  with support and help of our advisory and scientific committee members from different universities all around the world, the authors  decided to gather the  test problems of the  ISCSO in this  technical report as an optimization test set. Beside the well -known traditional benchmark instances, the  provided  test  set  might  also  be  used  for  further  performance  evaluation  of  future structural optimization algorithms.
