AbstractThe main aim of the present study is to propose an efficient methodology for tackling reliability-based seismic design optimization problems of steel moment-resisting frames incorporating the concepts of performance-based design. A serial integration of particle swarm optimization (PSO) and bat algorithm (BA), termed as PSO-BA metaheuristic, is proposed as the optimizer of this study. The Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) method is employed to evaluate the reliability constraints during the… CONTINUE READING
