This paper introduces a novel optimization algorithm, group search optimization (GSO) algorithm and its implementation method is presented in detail. The GSO is used to investigate the planar and space truss structures with continuous variables and is tested by two truss optimization problems. The optimization results are compared with that of the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm, the particle swarm optimization with passive congregation (PSOPC) and the heuristic particle swarm… CONTINUE READING
