Abstract: AbstractThe current study presents an enhanced biogeography-based optimization (EBBO) algorithm for size and shape optimization of truss structures with natural frequency constraints. The BBO algorithm is one of the recently developed meta-heuristic algorithms inspired by the mathematical models in biogeography science and is based on the migration behavior of species among the habitats in the nature. In this study, the overall performance of the standard BBO algorithm is enhanced by new migration and mutatio…
