Abstract

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.

Abstract

In this research, a new objective function has been proposed for optimal design of the Buckling Restrained Braced Frames (BRBFs) is performed using nonlinear time history analysis. The BRBF is a particular type of bracing system that has been widely utilized in recent years. The nonlinear time history analysis also provides a detailed view of the behavior of the structure. The purpose of this study is to provide an optimal design based on minimizing the weight of the structure while increasing the energy dissipation capability of the structure. Due to the complexity of the problem, the Enhanced Vibrating Particles Systems (EVPS) meta-heuristic algorithm is used to perform the optimization. Here, a 3-story frame, a 6-story frame and a 9-story frame are investigated simultaneously considering the continuous and discrete optimization.

Abstract

Due to the random nature of the variables affecting the analysis and design of structures, the reliability method is considered as one of the most important and widely used topics in structural engineering. Despite the simplicity of moment methods, the answer to problems with multiple design points (the point with the highest probability of failure) such as transmission line towers depends a lot on the starting point of the search; and it may converge to the local optima answer which is not desirable. Simulation methods also require a large number of evaluations of the limit state function and increase the volume and time of calculations. Also, the design point is not calculated in most of these methods. In this study, the reliability index of four transmission line towers was calculated with four metaheuristic algorithms in which the limit state function was defined based on the displacement of nodes and the results were compared with the results of Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) method. For this purpose, the objective function was defined as the geometric distance between the point on the function of the boundary condition to the origin in the standard normal coordinate system and the constraint of the problem (the limit state function) based on the displacement of the nodes. Random variables in these problems consisting of the cross-sectional area of the members, the modulus of elasticity, and the nodal loads.

Abstract

Nowadays, the optimal design of structures based on reliability has been converted to an active topic in structural engineering. The Reliability-Based Design Optimization (RBDO) methods provide the structural design with lower cost and more safety, simultaneously. In this study, the optimal design based on reliability of dome truss structures with probability constraint of the frequency limitation is discussed. To solve the RBDO problem, nested double-loop method is considered; one of the loops performs the optimization process and the other one assesses the reliability of the structure. The optimization process is implemented using ECBO and EVPS algorithms and the reliability index is calculated using the Monte Carlo simulation method. Finally, the size and shape reliability-based optimization of 52-bar and 120-bar dome trusses has been investigated.

Abstract

A modified dolphin monitoring (MDM) is used to augment the efficiency of particle swarm optimization (PSO) and enhanced vibrating particle system (EVPS) for the numerical crack identification problems in plate structures. The extended finite element method (XFEM) is employed for modeling the fracture. The forward problem is untangled by some cycle loading phase via dynamic XFEM. Furthermore, the inverse problem is solved and compared via two PSO and EVPS algorithms. All the problems are also dissolved by means of fine and coarse meshing. The results illustrate that the function of XFEM-PSO-MDM and XFEM-EVPS-MDM is superior to XFEM-PSO and XFEM-EVPS methods. The algorithms coupled via MDM offer a higher convergence rate with more reliable results. The MDM is found to be a suitable tool which can promotes the ability of the algorithms in achieving the optimum solutions.
