Abstract:   (14579 Views)
Colliding bodies optimization (CBO) is a new population-based stochastic optimization algorithm based on the governing laws of one dimensional collision between two bodies from the physics. Each agent is modeled as a body with a specified mass and velocity. A collision occurs between pairs of objects to find the global or near-global solutions. Enhanced colliding bodies optimization (ECBO) uses memory to save some best solutions and utilizes a mechanism to escape from local optima. The performances of the CBO and ECBO are shown through truss and frame design optimization problems. The codes of these methods are presented in MATLAB and C++.
