Abstract This paper presents an effective method to optimize stay cables of steel cable-stayed bridges using nonlinear inelastic analysis and a micro-genetic algorithm (μGA). The innovation of the proposed procedure is that both initial cable tensions and total weight of the cables are optimized. In order to calculate the optimum initial cable tensions, a new μGA-based method using a unit load matrix is proposed, which allows a significant reduction of computational effort. The cable cross… CONTINUE READING
