Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Particular emphasis is placed on computational methods to model, control and manage new structural solutions and material types. This integration of their design together with optimisation technologies is prevalent in all aspects of industry and research. This book presents the latest research shared at the Eleventh International Conference on the title topic. Research topics included: Optimisation and Manufacturing; Structural Optimisation; Optimisation in Biomechanics; Shape and Topology Optimisation; Industrial Examples of Design Optimisation; Fluid Structure Interaction; Damage and Fracture Mechanics Studies; Composite Materials and Structures; Material Optimisation; Aerospace Structures; Applications in Mechanical and Car Engineering; New Algorithms; Optimisation and Earthquakes; Optimisation Under Extreme Forces; Optimisation in Aerodynamics; Life Cost Optimisation; Reliability Based Optimisation.

Book News Annotation:

Most of the papers presented at a recent conference held in Portugal are collected here. Some deal with the algorithmic part of this scientific discipline, while other authors describe innovative design optimization formulations in several engineering fields or practical applications in industrial problems. Papers are in sections on new and enhanced algorithms, shape optimisation, topology optimization, design optimisation in materials, construction and bridge engineering, design optimization in aircraft engineering, and optimisation in dam and soil engineering. Specific topics include application of self-organizing maps to genetic algorithms, a mixed-integer non-linear programming approach to structural optimization, topological optimization for 3D cylindrical truss structures, optimal bracing type and position to minimize lateral drift in high-rise buildings, and design of a novel electro-active polymer actuator for driving the wings of a flapping micro air vehicle. Brebbia is affiliated with Wessex Institute of Technology. Hernández is affiliated with the University of La Coruña, Spain. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics.
