SINGLE-OBJECTIVE SIZING AND TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION OF CABLED-TRUSSES USING GENETIC ALGORITHMS
Finotto V.C., Valášek M.
pages 84 - 95, full text

This paper demonstrates the application of genetic algorithms to design cabled-truss structures with minimum weight. Optimized lightweight structures are determined through a discrete topology and sizing optimization process which is based on ground structure approach and genetic algorithms. Simulations are presented showing comparisons between obtained cabled-trusses with traditional truss benchmarks. In addition, simulation results highlight the potential benefits of using cables for improving truss structural performance.
