Part of the Mathematical Concepts and Methods in Science and Engineering book series (MCSENG, volume 43)


In this chapter we shall consider some problems in the optimal design of thin elastic plates. In recent years, these problems have received attention in connection with the broad possibilities of optimization provided by the variation of both the thickness and the elastic moduli of a plate.
