Optimization of Concrete Gravity Dam's Dimensional Design Using Metaheuristic Algorithms

New Optimization of Concrete Gravity Dam's Dimensional Design Using Metaheuristic Algorithms

Introduction

The construction purpose of the dam:
• Flood control
• Supplying water

• Power generation (hydroelectric)
• Recreational


Limitations:
• Failure to meet all needs during the operation period
• Need for large funds
• The complexity of reservoir design issues in case of considering real conditions


The most important objective functions:
• Minimizing reservoir capacity
• Maximizing net profit from exploitation


 Reservoirs' Operation:

• Supply of downstream water (simple operation)
• Supply of energy (hydroelectric operation)
Cellular automata algorithms and Ant Colony

Algorithms of cellular automata and Ant Colony

Founding
Durigo et al. (1961)

As a multi-factor solution for problematic optimization issues such as travelling salesman

Based on the behavior of the ants to find food, especially how to find the shortest route between food and nest

 

Optimum reservoir design

Finding the minimum reservoir size that:
• Provides the operating qualification
• Provides the objective reliability


Presented Algorithms:

First Algorithm: ARCA

Second algorithm: Ant-CA
