Introduction Simple programming technique which mimics natural genetics is known as genetic algorithm. It consists of reproduction, crossover, mutation, permutation, ply addition and deletion Strengths: Laminate stacking sequence design ose to global minimum Close to global minimum Weakness: High computational costs proved GA Improved GA : Reduced computational costs Improve the reliability Lighter design – weight reduced by 4%
