Abstract: Taking the layout problem of satellite cabins as background, the authors present a ringwave exploratory heuristic algorithm (REHA) based on the discrete gravity centre no fit polygon (DGCNFP) for the optimal layout problem of irregular polygons in a circular container with performance constraint in two-dimensional space. Proposed an adaptive artificial bee colony (AABC) algorithm which can dynamically adjust the select press in the solution process, so it can avoid falling into local optima too early. Parameters of the sort function in REHA are optimised by the AABC to form a hybrid algorithm for the irregularity polygon layout problem. The numerical results on the benchmark show that the hybrid algorithm is effective to the layout problem.
