Abstract

Optimum control of upstream pumping station in open channels with given constraint in downstream end is presented in this paper. The upstream control is capable of minimizing water level fluctuations in the channel in which the downstream pumping station causes an undesirable wave. The proposed method combines an unsteady non-uniform flow solver with shock-capturing capability, Fourier series and metaheuristic firefly algorithm. Fourier series is used to estimate the optimum inflow control and firefly algorithm is utilized to determine the unknown coefficients in the series. With a suitable objective function, the procedure generates the optimum inflow hydrograph that can effectively cancel destructive downstream waves. The results have been compared with the results obtained by a variational approach and show satisfactory improvement both in simplicity and the value of objective function.

Abstract

In this study, teaching-learning-based optimization (TLBO) algorithm is employed for the first time for optimization of real world truss bridges. The objective function considered is the weight of the structure subjected to design constraints including internal stress within bar elements and serviceability (deflection). Two examples demonstrate the effectiveness of TLBO algorithm in optimization of such structures. Various design groups have been considered for each problem and the results are compared. Both tensile and compressive stresses are taken into account. The results show that TLBO has a great intrinsic capability in problems involving nonlinear design criteria.
