RFEM 6 | Optimization & Costs / CO2 Emission Estimation

The Optimization & Costs/CO2 Emission Estimation add-on consists of two parts: On the one hand, you can use it to determine an optimal parameter layout for parameterized models, based on the user-defined optimization criteria. For this purpose, the artificial intelligence technology (AI) of particle swarm optimization (PSO) is used. On the other hand, you have the option to estimate the costs and CO2 emissions of a model by specifying the unit costs and emissions for the materials used in the model.

This manual describes the features of the add-on for the programs RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9. The explanations refer to RFEM, but also apply to RSTAB.
