Abstract:   (5501 Views)
In this paper, a new robust metaheuristic optimization algorithm called improved time evolutionary optimization (ITEO) is applied to design reinforced concrete one-way ribbed slabs. Geometric and strength characteristics of concrete slabs are considered as design variables. The optimal design is such that in addition to achieving the minimum cost, all design constraints are satisfied under American Concrete Institute’s ACI 318-05 Standard. So, the numerical examples considered in this study have a large number of design variables and design constraints that make it complicated to converge the global optimal design. The ITEO has an excellent balance between the two phases of exploration and extraction and it has a high ability to find the optimal point of such problems. The comparison results between the ITEO and some other metaheuristic algorithms show the proposed method is competitive compared to others, and in some cases, superior to some other available metaheuristic techniques in terms of the faster convergence rate, performance, robustness of finding an optimal design solution, and needs a smaller number of function evaluations for designing considered constrained engineering problems.
