• Efficient optimisation of structures using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Seffen, KA; Clarkson, PJ; Parks, GT (MCB University Press, 1999)
      This paper presents a novel approach to the optimisation of structures using a Tabu search (TS) method. TS is a metaheuristic which is used to guide local search methods towards a globally optimal solution by using flexible ...
    • Engineering design optimisation using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ; Shahpar, S; Leonard, PJ (Professional Engineering Publishing, 2000)
      This paper describes an optimisation methodology that has been specifically developed for engineering design problems. The methodology is based on a Tabu search (TS) algorithm that has been shown to find high quality ...
