Simplified Dolphin Echolocation (SDE) optimization is an improved version of the Dolphin Echolocation optimization. The dolphin echolocation (DE) is a recently proposed metaheuristic algorithm, which was imitated dolphin’s hunting process. The global or near global optimum solution modeled as dolphin’s bait, dolphins send sound in different directions to discover the best bait among their search space. This paper introduced a new optimization method called SDE for weight optimization of steel truss structures problems. SDE applies some new approaches for generating new solutions. These improvements enhance the accuracy and convergence rate of the DE SDE does not depend on any empirical parameter. The results of the SDE for mathematical and engineering optimization problems are compared to those of the standard DE and some popular metaheuristic algorithms. The results show that SDE is competitive with other algorithms.

Offshore jacket-type towers are steel structures designed and constructed in marine environments for various purposes such as oil exploration and exploitation units, oceanographic research, and undersea testing. In this paper a newly developed meta-heuristic algorithm, namely Cyclical Parthenogenesis Algorithm (CPA), is utilized for sizing optimization of a jacket-type offshore structure. The algorithm is based on some key aspects of the lives of aphids as one of the highly successful organisms, especially their ability to reproduce with and without mating. The optimal design procedure aims to obtain a minimum weight jacket-type structure subjected to API-RP 2A-WSD specifications. SAP2000 and its Open Application Programming Interface (OAPI) feature are utilized to model the jacket-type structure and the corresponding loading. The results of the optimization process are then compared with those of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and its democratic version (DPSO).

Vibrating particles system (VPS) is a new meta-heuristic algorithm based on the free vibration of freedom system’ single degree with viscous damping. In this algorithm, each agent gradually approach to its equilibrium position; new agents are generated according to current agents and a historically best position. Enhanced vibrating particles system (EVPS) employs a new alternative procedure to enhance the performance of the VPS algorithm. Two different truss structures are investigated to demonstrate the performance of the VPS and EVPS weight optimization of structures.
