In this section, two examples consisting of a ten-element cantilever beam, a Bowstring plane truss, and a three-story threebay unbraced frame structures are presented to examine the charged system search algorithm.
Also, excessive lateral deformability of unbraced frames can result intolerable damage at non-structural elements even under moderate earthquakes.
