Abstract

The Prager-Shield theory of optimal plastic design is applied to systems of preassigned topography (configuration) subject to either a single or several alternate load conditions. For the particular case of pin-jointed frames and a single load system, the criteria derived are shown to reduce to a condition obtained recently by Prager. The method is extended to cover joints of nonzero cost and it is illustrated with examples of trusses and grillages. Finally, the optimization of discrete grillages having movable beams in preassigned directions is considered.
