Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, an algorithm for the calculation of structural reliability under combined loading is formulated, in which loads or any other actions upon structures are modelled as independent random sequences and the relevant limit state criterion is pointwise approximated by a tangent hyperplane.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a simple evolutionary procedure is proposed for shape and layout optimization of structures, where low stressed material is progressively eliminated from the structure during the evolution process, and various examples are presented to illustrate the optimum structural shapes and layouts achieved by this procedure.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a numerical method for solving dynamic problems within the peridynamic theory is described, and the properties of the method for modeling brittle dynamic crack growth are discussed, as well as its accuracy and numerical stability.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a modified version of the Newton-Raphson method is proposed to overcome limit points in the finite element method with a fixed load level and a constraint equation.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Simulation results reveal that using CSA may lead to finding promising results compared to the other algorithms, and this paper proposes a novel metaheuristic optimizer, named crow search algorithm (CSA), based on the intelligent behavior of crows.
