Topology Optimisation Using MPBILs and Multi-Grid Ground Element
AbstractThis paper aims to study the comparative performance of original multi-objective population-based incremental learning (MPBIL) and three improvements of MPBIL. The first improvement of original MPBIL is an opposite-based concept, whereas the second and third method enhance the performance of MPBIL using the multi and adaptive learning rate, respectively. Four classic multi-objective structural topology optimization problems are used for testing the performance. Furthermore, these topology optimization problems are improved by the method of multiple resolutions of ground elements, which is called a multi-grid approach (MG). Multi-objective design problems with MG design variables are then posed and tackled by the traditional MPBIL and its improved variants. The results show that using MPBIL with opposite-based concept and MG approach can outperform other MPBIL versions. View Full-Text
