NEW FIELD IN STRUCTURAL MECHANICS: THE THEORY OF OPTIMAL STRUCTURAL LAYOUTS.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

After analysing the relationship between various types of structural optimization problems, the foundations of optimal layout theory are reviewed and then illustrated with a simple example. Finally, a survey of the present state of knowledge for each broader class of layout problems is presented. The theory presented is of practical significance because changes in the layout have a substantial effect on the total cost of structures. Owing to some of its unusual mathematical features, layout theory is also having a certain impact on pure and applied mathematics. It is explained that in structural mechanics, most optimal design problems involve some layout optimization.
