Automation Bridge Design and Structural Optimization
This paper summarizes the structural optimization applications in civil engineering design and development of the situation based on the characteristics of the bridge structure design process is proposed for the bridge project to the genetic algorithm, neural network, expert system technology as the basis for combining automated design and optimization of structural design of the system; as basic idea, given the structure design of automation system design and optimization of the overall design framework, and prestressed beam design automation is simply an example of structural design and optimization of design automation. Finally, a brief summary of the development process of bridge design software, design automation and optimization that the inevitable trend of development.
