Sizing optimization of truss structures using flower pollination algorithm

Abstract

The recently developed flower pollination algorithm is used to minimize the weight of truss structures, including sizing design variables. The new algorithm can efficiently combine local and global searches, inspired by cross-pollination and self-pollination of flowering plants, respectively. Furthermore, it implements an iterative constraint handling… (More)
