A Three-bar Truss Design using Single-solution Simulated Kalman Filter Optimizer
Keywords:Three-bar truss, Simulated Kalman filter, Design, Optimization
Three-bar truss is a structure that is important in the field of civil engineering. Design of the three-bar truss is thus an interesting problem in engineering. Metaheuristic approach has been employed to get near-optimal solution of this problem. A study to investigate the effectiveness of a new single-solution simulated Kalman filter (ssSKF) algorithm in three-bar truss design is presented in this paper. The solution obtained by the ssSKF is as good as hybrid lightning search algorithm-simplex method and better than solutions produced other algorithms in literature.
