Discrete Structural Optimization

  • W. Gutkowski

Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 373)

About this book


The engineering design of structures and machines consists often in finding the best solution among a finite number of feasible decisions. This volume comprises problems and solution methods for discrete structural optimization. Exact, approximate and heuristic methods are presented applying deterministic and stochastic approaches.
