Multi-Objective Optimal Design of Frame Structures with Group Search Optimizer
Multi-objective optimal design of frame structures was carried out by group search optimizer with Pareto solutions theory in this paper. A one bay frame structure was employed to evaluate the performance of group search optimizer. Calculation results show the stochastic algorithm has excellent performance in terms of convergence rate, feasibility, practicality and superiority in structure optimal design.
