This paper focuses on the development of a new backcalculation method for concrete road structures based on a hybrid evolutionary global optimization algorithm, namely shuffled complex evolution (SCE). Evolutionary optimization algorithms are ideally suited for intrinsically multi-modal, non-convex, and discontinuous real-world problems such as pavement(More)
