Decomposition And Sensitivity Analysis For Some Dynamic Problems Of Optimal Design
The problems of finding the best precurved surface of thin-shelled structural elements form a special class of optimal design problems [1-5]. These problems are of both theoretical and applied interest (shallow curvilinear panels and corrugated plates and shells) and the corresponding optimal solutions may lead to improving such mechanical characteristics of structures as for example rigidity, stability, and so on. The principal result for the problems [1,2] is that the optimal distribution of the initial curvature of the plate is determined from the distribution of the deflection of an unbent plate. This enables us to obtain anaiitical solution for a wide class of two-dimensional problems and to determine the most interesting features of the optimal design.
