Study on Optimum Cross-Section of Gravity Retaining Wall Based on ANSYS
Based on the geometric properties of a gravity retaining wall, an optimal design model is proposed, and then the best cross-section of the gravity retaining wall can be obtained by using ANSYS optimal techniques. An example is given to verify the effectiveness and superiority of the optimal design method based on ANSYS, and the results show that the optimum design is better than the original one. Further, the comparison between the sub-problem approximation optimal method and the first-order optimal method is performed, and our investigation proves that the first-order optimal method is more economical and reasonable.
