Particle Swarm Optimization Approach for Multi-Objective Composite Box-Beam Design

  title={Particle Swarm Optimization Approach for Multi-Objective Composite Box-Beam Design},
  author={Sivaprakasam Suresh and P. B. Sujit and A. B. Koteswara Rao},
This paper presents a multi-agent search technique to design an optimal composite box-beam helicopter rotor blade. The search technique is called particle swarm optimization (‘inspired by the choreography of a bird flock’). The continuous geometry parameters (cross-sectional dimensions) and discrete ply angles of the box-beams are considered as design variables. The objective of the design problem is to achieve a) specified stiffness value and b) maximum elastic coupling. The presence of… CONTINUE READING
