This paper deals with the automated design and economic optimization of reinforced concrete frame bridges typically used in road construction. The optimization algorithms applied are (i) parallel genetic algorithms (PGA) and (ii) parallel memetic algorithms (PMA). The evaluation of solutions follows the Spanish Code for structural concrete.

This paper deals with the economic optimization of reinforced concrete box frames used in road construction. It shows the efficiency of four heuristic algorithms applied to a problem of 50 design variables. Heuristic methods used are the random walk and the descent local search. The metaheuristic methods are the threshold accepting and the simulated(More)
