The main aim of the present study is to propose a modified harmony search (MHS) algorithm for size and shape optimization of structures. The standard harmony search (HS) algorithm is conceptualized using the musical process of searching for a perfect state of the harmony. It uses a stochastic random search instead of a gradient search. The proposed MHS algorithm is designed based on elitism. In fact the MHS is a multi-staged version of the HS and in each stage a new harmony memory is created using the information of the previous stages. Numerical results reveal that the proposed algorithm is a powerful optimization technique with improved exploitation characteristics compared with the standard HS.

A new meta-heuristic algorithm is proposed for optimal design of reinforced concrete (RC) frame structures subject to combinations of gravity and lateral static loads based on ACI 318-08 design code. In the present work, artificial bee colony algorithm (ABCA) is focused and an improved ABCA (IABCA) is proposed to achieve the optimization task. The total cost of the RC frames is minimized during the optimization process subject to constraints on demand capacity ratios (DCRs) of structural members. Three benchmark design examples are tested using ABCA and IABCA and the results are compared with those of presented in the literature. The numerical results indicate that the proposed IABCA is an efficient computational tool for discrete optimization of RC frames.

The main aim of the present study is to optimize steel moment frames in the framework of performance-based design and to assess the seismic collapse capacity of the optimal structures. In the first phase of this study, four well-known metaheuristic algorithms are employed to achieve the optimization task. In the second phase, the seismic collapse safety of the obtained optimal designs is evaluated by conducting incremental dynamic analysis and generating fragility curves. Three illustrative examples including 3-, 6-, and 12-story steel moment frames are presented. The numerical results demonstrate that all the performance-based optimal designs obtained by the metahuristic algorithms are of acceptable collapse margin ratio.

The main objective of this study is to optimize reinforced concrete (RC) frames in the framework of performance-based design using metaheuristics. Three improved and efficient metaheuristics are employed in this work, namely, improved multi-verse (IMV), improved black hole (IBH) and modified newton metaheuristic algorithm (MNMA). These metaheuristic algorithms are applied for performance-based design optimization of 6- and 12-story planar RC frames. The seismic response of the structures is evaluated using pushover analysis during the optimization process. The obtained results show that the IBH outperforms the other algorithms.

The main objective of this paper is to optimize the size and layout of planar truss structures simultaneously. To deal with this challenging type of truss optimization problem, the center of mass optimization (CMO) metaheuristic algorithm is utilized, and an extensive parametric study is conducted to find the best setting of internal parameters of the algorithm. The CMO metaheuristic is based on the physical concept of the center of mass in space. The effectiveness of the CMO metaheuristic is demonstrated through the presentation of three benchmark truss layout optimization problems. The numerical results indicate that the CMO is competitive with other metaheuristics and, in some cases, outperforms them.
