Optimum building concept generation and integration of design process using a structured genetic algorithm

Abstract:The paper investigates the application of a structured Genetic Algorithm (sGA) to the structural design of buildings. The current research aim is to develop a decision support system to assist the designer at the conceptual stage of the design process where important decisions which influence the future of projects, are made; a very significant amount of the total project cost is committed at this stage. The paper also discusses the possibility of the integration of design activities of disciplines involved in the design process, using the sGA. Methodologies of using sGA are introduced and some of the shortcomings of the sGA are identified.
