Abstract

The post-war period has been characterized by rapid progress in structural optimization. Most of the investigations have been directed at two aspects: application of numerical methods to discretized representations of practical design problems, and fundamental properties of optimal structures examined by means of analytical methods and relatively simple, idealized mathematical models. The aim of the present article is to discuss general features of optimal structures. The next section examines the scope of structural optimization at a conceptual level and then a unified review of existing optimality criteria is given. The last section is devoted to optimal layout problems. Mathematical programming and finite element techniques as well as dynamic and rheological problems are outside the scope of this article.
