This chapter investigates discrete design optimization of reinforcement concrete frames using the recently developed metaheuristic called Enhanced Colliding Bodies Optimization (ECBO) and the Non-dominated Sorting Enhanced Colliding Bodies Optimization (NSECBO) algorithm. The objective function of algorithms consists of construction material costs of reinforced concrete structural elements and carbon dioxide (\( {\mathrm{CO}}_2 \)) emissions through different phases of a building life cycle… CONTINUE READING
