Configuring Optimal Design of an Outrigger and Belt System for High Rise Building with the aid of Evolved Gray Wolf Optimization
Increasing the population in a country like India lands is scarce and expensive, which urges high-rise buildings as an alternate solution. Constructing high-rise buildings becomes possible with advanced mechanical equipment, structural systems, and the availability of building materials. Safety maintenance is challenging because of lateral load, such as wind or earthquake loads consequent lateral displacement in a high-rise building. This research anticipates identifying an optimal design in economic cost and regulating lateral displacements for high-rise buildings. To pursue this, this research considers 100-story skyscraper as a specimen and intends to configure core thickness, total outrigger, and belt volume at the top of each interval. To resolve, the research utilizes Evolved Gray wolf optimization (EGWO) evolves from conventional Gray wolf optimization (EGWO) techniques. It is evident, incorporation of optimization techniques exhibits superior performance over existing techniques. Amid EGWO unveils proficient performance over contest techniques in configuring optimal design concerning lateral displacement and cost.
