Abstract

In this paper, we formulate an optimal weight design (OWD) problem of a 23 stories frame structure for a constrained relative story displacement as a statically indeterminate structure problem and solve it directly by keeping the constraints based on an improved genetic algorithm (GA). We discuss the efficiency between the proposed method and the discredited optimum criteria methods.
