Abstract

The causes of singular structural topologies, which prevent most iterative computational algorithms from reaching the global optimal solution, are explained in the light of the theory of exact optimal layouts. This theory is also used for deriving eight fundamental characteristics of singular topologies. The above findings are illustrated with case studies of exact optimal layouts for a single load and for two load conditions with stress constraints.
