Abstract

In this work, the optimization of structural and mechanical problems is carried out using the equilibrium optimizer (EO), which is a recent physical-based algorithm.The the ten-bar planar truss structure, planetary gearbox, hydrostatic thrust bearing, and robot gripper mechanism problems are solved using the EO algorithm. The results achieved using the EO in solving these problems are compared with those of recent algorithms. The computational results show that EO yields better outcomes and competitive results that can also be applied for the other problems studied.
