Synopses & Reviews
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.
