Evolutionary truss layout optimization using the vectorized structure approach

Abstract

A new method called vectorized structure approach (VSA) is proposed for truss layout optimization, which allows effective changes to the truss structure by iteratively adding or removing nodes. This approach generalizes topology optimization to shape optimization, which is based on geometric construction rules. The VSA can generate structures containing a… (More)
