The algorithm is applied to two Engineering problems namely Spring Design and Welded Beam
Optimization and compared with Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm and Cuckoo Search Algorithm.
To accommodate the German manufacturer, Algoma is investing $3 million in plate profiling equipment that will be installed in their welded beam
Pipes; iii) Manufacturing of Tubular Poles; iv) Manufacturing of Steel Floors (Chequered) Plates; v) Continuous Welded Beam
Line Project; and vi) Builders Hardware Manufacturing Plant.
