Book Description

Optimal Structural Design can be referred to as one of the most important and promising branches of applied mathematics and mechanics. The basic problem of optimal design is to construct a structure that satisfied a system of given constraints and provides the best quality and performance. This book reflects the culmination of Russian activity in the field of optimal structural design.
