Grillage Optimization with Multiple Objectives
The structural design problems are acknowledged to be commonly multicriteria in nature. The various multicriteria optimization methods are reviewed and the most efficient and easy-to-use Pareto optimal solution methods are applied to structural optimization of grillages under lateral uniform load. The result of the study shows that Pareto optimal solution methods can easily be applied to structural optimization with multiple objectives, and the designer can have a choice from those Pareto optimal solutions to meet an appropriate design environment.
