Ant Colony Algorithm: an Application of Design Self-Balancing Torsion Bar
Using the improved Ant Colony Algorithm to optimize torsion bar diameter, and take the optimization results into practice. Results not only show the Ant Colony Algorithm is feasible and provides a new method choosing torsion bar diameter but also is satisfied.Based on maximum deformation energy and not exceeding the allowable stress values of a torsion-bar spring, the thesis builds the optimization model for the self-balancing torsion bar.
