Abstract

An earlier study by Prager and the first author considered the optimization of archgrids for a given external load. The current paper discusses the optimal design of archgrids for a combination of given external loads and selfweight. Three different methods are described and then illustrated with examples of one- and two-way arch systems. The results furnished by various methods show a good agreement and also converge to earlier obtained analytical solutions.
