Towards Optimal Design of Steel - Concrete Composite Plane Frames using a Soft Computing Tool


The use of steel – concrete composite elements in a multistoried building increases the speed of construction and reduces the overall cost. The optimum design of composite elements such as slabs, beams and columns can further reduce the cost of the building frame. In the present study, therefore, Genetic Algorithm (GA) based design optimization of steel… (More)
