Abstract

This investigation features two approaches to optimal design of multilayer plates at impulse loading. The first approach deals with minimization of stresses in the plate layers by selecting the elastic properties of the fillers. The second approach is based on a two‐level synthesis procedure applied to the problem of optimal design of multilayer plates with a minimum mass. The effectiveness of these approaches is illustrated by numerical examples.

Sommario. L'analisi è tesa alla caratterizzazione di due procedure di progettazione ottimale di piastre multistrato ad azioni impulsive. La prima procedura concerne con la minimizzazione dello sforzo negli strati della piastra selezionando le proprietà elastiche dei riempimenti.II secondo approccio e basato su di una procedura a due livelli di sintesi applicata al problema del disegno ottimo di piastre multistrato con una massa minima. L'efficacia di questi approcci e illustrata tramite esempi numerici.
