Teaching Learning Based Optimization method is an evolutionary algorithm that simulates the teaching–learning phenomenon of a classroom. This MATLAB code implements this technique for truss optimization problem. HelpTLBO.mp4 explains how to use the code. More details about TLBO method and more efficient TLBO algorithm could be find in the following references:
1-Optimal design of truss structures for size and shape with frequency constraints using a collaborative optimization strategy
2-Multi-class teaching–learning-based optimization for truss design with frequency constraints
3-Design of space trusses using modified teaching learning based optimization

thank you



thank you


this has given a real picture of TLA for all the societies (in particular teaching) . I thank Mr.Farshchin made this work open.
