Optimum Design Of Space Steel Structures With Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm
Over the past few years, swarm intelligence based optimization techniques such as ant colony optimization and particle swarm optimization have received considerable attention from researchers. These algorithms have been used in the solution of various engineering problems. This study presents an Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm (ABC) technique for discrete optimization of space steel frame. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of algorithm, including space frame problem was solved. The results demonstrate that the artificial bee colony algorithm (ABC) is very effective and robust for space steel frames design.
