The determination of optimal design plan of the Sha-He aqueduct

In this paper, Genetic Algorithms (GA) is adopted as the global searching methods, and the direct search method of mixed discrete variables as the local searching method. Then the GA is improved and the hybrid GA (HGA) is formed. Based on the HGA, the optimal design programs for aqueduct are developed, and used to optimize the Sha-He aqueduct. Four aqueduct… (More)
