چکیده

A comprehensive set of ten artificial neural networks is developed to suggest optimal dimensions of type ‘C’ Bi-lobe tanks used in the shipping of liquefied natural gas. Multi-objective optimization technique considering the maximum capacity and minimum cost of vessels are implemented for determining optimum vessel dimensions. Generated populations from a genetic algorithm are used by Finite Element Analysis to develop new models and find primary membrane and local stresses to compare with their permissible ranges using PYTHON coding. The optimum design space is mathematically modeled by training ten artificial neural networks with design variables generated by the Taguchi method. The results are compared with actual design data and the 93% achieved accuracy shows the precision of the developed design system.

Low weight and high load capacity are remarkable advantages of sandwich panels with corrugated core, which make them more considerable by engineering structure designers. It’s important to consider the limitations such as yielding and buckling as design constraints for optimal design of these panels. In this paper, multi-objective optimization of sandwich panels with corrugated core is carried ...

today, scouring is one of the important topics in the river and coastal engineering so that the most destruction in the bridges is occurred due to this phenomenon. whereas the bridges are assumed as the most important connecting structures in the communications roads in the country and their importance is doubled while floodwater, thus exact design and maintenance thereof is very crucial. f...

The need for prediction and patterns of gas consumption especially in the cold seasons is essential for consumption management and policy planning decision making. In residential and commercial uses which account for the bulk of gas consumption in the country the effects of meteorological variables have the highest impact on consumption.  In the present research four variables include daily ave...
