In this article, an efficient methodology is presented to optimize the topology of structural systems under transient loads. Equivalent static loads concept is used to deal with transient loads and to solve an alternate quasi-static optimization problem. The maximum strain energy of the structure under the transient load during the loading interval is used as objective function. The objective function is calculated in each iteration and then the dynamic optimization problem is replaced by a static optimization problem, which is subsequently solved by a convex linearization approach combining linear and reciprocal approximation functions. The optimal layout of a deep beam subjected to transient loads is considered as a case study to verify the effectiveness of the presented methodology. Results indicate that the optimal layout is dependant of the loading interval.

Structural  design  optimization  usually  deals  with  multiple  conflicting  objectives  to  obtain the minimum construction cost, minimum weight, and maximum safety of the final design. Therefore, finding the optimum design is hard and time-consuming for  such problems.  In this paper, we borrow the basic concept of multi-criterion decision-making and combine it with  Particle  Swarm  Optimization  (PSO)  to  develop  an  algorithm  for  accelerating convergence  toward  the  optimum  solution  in  structural  multi-objective  optimization scenarios.  The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm was illustrated in some benchmark reinforced concrete (RC) optimization problems. The main goal was to minimize the cost or weight of structures while satisfying all design requirements imposed by design codes.  The results confirm the ability of the proposed algorithm to efficiently find optimal solutions for structural optimization problems.
