Abstract:   (5863 Views)
Metaheuristics are considered the first choice in addressing structural optimization problems. One of the complicated structural optimization problems is the highly nonlinear dynamic truss shape and size optimization with multiple natural frequency constraints. On the other hand, natural frequency constraints are useful to control the responses of a dynamically exciting structure. In this regard, this study uses for the first time the water evaporation optimization (WEO) algorithm to address this problem. Four benchmark trusses are considered for experimental investigation of the WEO. Obtained results indicate the comparative performance of WEO to the best-known algorithms in this problem, high performance in comparison to those of different optimization techniques, and high performance in comparison to all algorithms in terms of robustness. The simulation results clearly show a good balance between the global and local exploration abilities of WEO and its potential robust efficiency for other complicated constrained engineering optimization problems.
