Abstract

In this study, a very recently developed intelligent algorithm called the self-adaptive bonomo optimizer (SABO) algorithm is implemented for the size and shape optimizations of the truss structures with the multiple frequency constraints. The bonomo optimizer (BO) algorithm is a recently developed metaheuristic optimization algorithm that imitates the social behavior and reproductive schemes of the bonobos and this algorithm is successfully applied to solve some challenging and highly nonlinear optimization problems. On the other hand, the BO algorithm suffers from the poor exploration and prematurely converges to the non-optimal solutions, especially when dealing with the multi-dimensional optimization problems. In order to overcome these shortcomings, an improved version of this algorithm, the so-called self-adaptive bonomo optimizer (SABO) algorithm, is utilized to optimize the truss structures subjected to the design constraints. The objective of this study is to minimize the weight of the truss structures with the multiple frequency constraints. Five well-known benchmark problems are considered to verify the robustness and reliability of the SABO algorithm. The design results obtained by the SABO algorithm are compared with those previously reported in the literature.
