By Niels Olhoff, Erik Lund (auth.), José Herskovits (eds.)

Advances in Structural Optimization provides the thoughts for a large set of functions, starting from the issues of dimension and form optimization (historically the 1st to be studied) to topology and fabric optimization. Structural versions are thought of that use either discrete and finite parts. Structural fabrics should be classical or new. rising tools also are addressed, akin to computerized differentiation, clever constructions optimization, integration of structural optimization in concurrent engineering environments, and multidisciplinary optimization.
For researchers and architects in industries corresponding to aerospace, car, mechanical, civil, nuclear, naval and offshore. A reference publication for complicated undergraduate or graduate classes on structural optimization and optimal layout.
