1. Earthwork Volume Optimization Using Imperialistic Competitive Algorithm to Minimize Energy Consumption of Agricultural Land Leveling

Isham Alzoubi

Volume 12, Issue 2 , Autumn 2020, , Pages 213-231

Abstract
  Land leveling is one of the most important steps in soil preparation for consequent objectives. Parallel policies need to take both energy and environmental subjects into the account as well as certain financial development and eco-friendly protection. Energy is one of the most important elements in ...  Read More
