Optimal Design for Stability under Dissipative, Gyroscopic, or Circulatory Loads
Part of the
International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
book series (IUTAM)
This paper concerns the optimization of elastic structures with regard to their stability under applied loads. The loads are assumed to be autonomous (they do not depend explicitly on time) and may be circulatory (velocity-independent, not derivable from a potential), gyroscopic (velocity-dependent, derivable from a potential), or dissi-pative (velocity-dependent, not derivable from a potential), in addition to the classical conservative loads.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
