Abstract:   (509 Views)
In this paper the performance of four well-known metaheuristics consisting of Artificial Bee Colony (ABC), Biogeographic Based Optimization (BBO), Harmony Search (HS) and Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) are investigated on optimal domain decomposition for parallel computing. A clique graph is used for transforming the connectivity of a finite element model (FEM) into that of the corresponding graph, and k-median approach is employed. The performance of these methods is investigated through four FE models with different topology and number of meshes. A comparison of the numerical results using different algorithms indicates, in most cases the BBO is capable of performing better or identical using less time with equal computational effort.
