Optimum Design Of Truss Structure Using Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm
Over the last few years, swarm intelligence techniques such as ant colony optimization and genetic optimization have received considerable attention from researchers. These algorithms have been used in the solution of various engineering problems. The main goal of the structural optimization is to minimize the weight of structures while satisfying all design requirements imposed by design codes. This study presents an Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm (ABC) technique for discrete optimization of truss structure. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of algorithm, including truss structure was solved. The results demonstrate that the artificial bee colony algorithm (ABC) is very effective and robust for truss design.
