Abstract
This paper presents an implementation of structural optimization algorithms for the design of horizontal links of Eccentrically Braced Frames (EBFs) when subjected to monotonic shear loading. The objective is to study optimized geometries that open new design paths for these types of elements. With the advent of new additive manufacturing techniques such as WAAM (wire and arc additive manufacturing), energy dissipators may become one of the strategic applications for 3D printing of steel structu...
