Abstract

The Bees Algorithm is a search procedure inspired by the way honey-bees forage for food. A standard mechanical design problem, the design of a welded beam structure, was used to benchmark the Bees Algorithm against other optimisation techniques. The paper presents the results obtained showing the robust performance of the Bees Algorithm.
