In this paper we present an implementation of a generic memetic algorithm for the edge bi-connectivity augmentation problem --the problem of augmenting a given graph by a cheapest possible set of additional edges in order to make the graph edge bi-connected. This problem is known for its applications to communication network design --the extension of an existing communication network to become robust against single link failures-- as well as in VLSI floor planning. We provide a C++ implementation of a generic memetic algorithm for the problem, as a good alternative for approximately solving it. We use known benchmarks in the literature for the problem as to experimentally evaluate how good the generic memetic algorithm works for the problem.
