In this research paper, a new surrogate-assisted metaheuristic for shape optimization is proposed. A seagull optimization algorithm (SOA) is used to solve the shape optimization of a vehicle bracket. The design problem is to find structural shape while minimizing structural mass and meeting a stress constraint. Function evaluations are carried out using finite element analysis and estimated by using a Kriging model. The results show that SOA has outstanding features just as the whale optimization algorithm and salp swarm optimization algorithm for designing optimal components in the industry.
