Optimal design of mechanical components using the Bees Algorithm

Koç, E., Otri, Sameh, Ghanbarzadeh, A. and Pham, Duc Truong 2009. Optimal design of mechanical components using the Bees Algorithm. Mechanical Engineering Science 223 (5) , pp. 1051-1056. 10.1243/09544062JMES838

This paper describes the first application of the Bees Algorithm to mechanical design optimization. The Bees Algorithm is a search procedure inspired by the way honey bees forage for food. Two standard mechanical design problems, the design of a welded beam structure and the design of coil springs, were used to benchmark the Bees Algorithm against other optimization techniques. The paper presents the results obtained showing the robust performance of the Bees Algorithm.
