A Multidisciplinary Optimization Platform Applied to Steel Constructions

Abdelkader Benanane, Serge Caperaa, M. Said Bekkouche and Djamel Kerdal

Abstract:
The design of the complex objects such as the buildings was always organized in levels of design since the preliminary phases to the final phases. If the approach by levels allows the designers to practise a precise and progressive definition to objects, it does not allow leading nevertheless to an optimal design of the projects. Consequently, we propose in this study, an original modelling allowing representing effectively all the process of the multidisciplinary design by the exchange of textual files (technical data and knowledge) between the different disciplines of the civil engineering (geotechnical studies, reinforced concrete and structural studies). We use for the loops of optimization the Monte-Carlo method because of its great robustness since it is based on the use of random numbers and the statistical tools, because it also puts up with any form of a function objective and allows to hold account easily constraints of optimization. The studies of test cases carried out on simple structures emphasize very significant and very promising variations as well as the dimensioning that the global cost.
