Optimisation of shear and lateral-torsional buckling of steel plate girders using meta-heuristic algorithms
The shear buckling of web plates and lateral-torsional buckling are among the major failure modes of plate girders. The importance of the lateral-torsional buckling capacity of plate girders was further evidenced when ...
Harmony search optimisation of dispersed laminated composite plates
One of the major goals in the process of designing structural components is to achieve the highest possible buckling load of the structural component while keeping the cost and weight at a minimum. This paper illustrates ...
