Abstract

Shape and size optimization with frequency constraints is a highly nonlinear problem with mixed design variables, non-convex search space, and multiple local optima. Therefore, a hybrid sine cosine firefly algorithm (HSCFA) is proposed to acquire more accurate solutions with less finite element analysis. The full attraction model of firefly algorithm (FA) is analyzed, and the factors that affect its computational efficiency and accuracy are revealed. A modified FA with simplified attraction model and adaptive parameter of sine cosine algorithm (SCA) is proposed to reduce the computational complexity and enhance the convergence rate. Then, the population is classified, and different populations are updated by modified FA and SCA respectively. Besides, the random search strategy based on Lévy flight is adopted to update the stagnant or infeasible solutions to enhance the population diversity. Elitist selection technique is applied to save the promising solutions and further improve the convergence rate. Moreover, the adaptive penalty function is employed to deal with the constraints. Finally, the performance of HSCFA is demonstrated through the numerical examples with nonstructural masses and frequency constraints. The results show that HSCFA is an efficient and competitive tool for shape and size optimization problems with frequency constraints.
