In this article, an improved grey wolf optimizer (IGWO) algorithm is developed for optimal design of truss structures. Grey wolf optimizer (GWO) is a recently proposed algorithm for optimization, which is herein improved to handle structural optimization in an efficient manner. In this work, performance of the GWO in structural optimization is also investigated. A few tunable parameters are defined to provide proper adaptability for the algorithm and to optimize the structures using fewer… CONTINUE READING
