Optimization of the cross section of car lift column under pressure load using genetic algorithms


Car elevators are responsible for lifting car to specific height. These sets are so necessary for firms which are related to manufacturing, servicing and mending of cars. In this article, two columns elevators under the pressure load were investigated and optimization process with respect to the forces and momentums to the column was performed based on Genetic Algorithms and the optimum parameters of the cross section have been obtained. After offering the optimum parameters, the effects of these parameters on the column maximum pressure tolerance has been investigated. In the optimization process, the cross section was assumed to be with lips. Results of numerical calculations for optimization are presented in tables and figures.
Keywords: Car elevator, compressive force, genetic algorithms
