Many design optimization problems in civil engineering are highly nonlinear and can be challenging to solve using traditional methods. In many cases, metaheurisitc algorithms can be an effective alternative and thus suitable in civil engineering applications. In this chapter, metaheuristic algorithms in civil engineering problems are briefly presented and recent applications are discussed. Two case studies such as the optimization of tuned mass dampers and cost optimization of reinforced concrete beams are analyzed.
