Abstract

The bridges reinforcement is an expensive activity. In this line, new cheap ways to fix bridges have been developed. One of them is the bridges reinforcement through conversion of the cable-stayed arch. The main aim is minimizing the distances between the tensions of each lengthwise position between the original bridge and the bridge with the reinforcement by the cable-stayed arch. For that, it is necessary to know the order that the tension must be applied. In this paper, we resolve this problem by using a recent metaheuristic called Crow Search Algorithm which is based on the intelligent behavior of crows, this approach is inspired by the feature of crows to hide their excess food. The obtained results are compared other approximate techniques by using a well-known statistical test. Promising results reveal that this new algorithm is competitive to solve the proposed problem.
