- To minimize cost of the design by optimizing the (i) reinforcement type, (ii) length, and (iii) layout of MSEWs.
- To compare performance of different metaheuristics on MSEW design problems.
CURRENT STATE OF THE RESEARCH
- A hybrid Cuckoo Search algorithm* based on the improvements of its exploration capability with the features of Differential Evolution algorithm is developed to minimize the cost of designed wall.
- The performance of HCSDE is tested with multiple benchmark problems. In most cases, HCSDE improves the capability of FPA significantly and generates slights better results than the ones of DE.
