  • The choice of a representation i.e. the deeni-tion of the search space, is of vital importance in all Evolutionary Optimization processes. In the context of Topological Optimum Design in Structural Mechanics, this paper investigates possible representations for evolutionary shape design. The goal is the identiication of a shape in IR n (n = 2 or n = 3) having optimal mechanical properties. Evolutionary Computation has been demonstrated a valuable tool for TOD problems. However, all past results… CONTINUE READING
