Structural Topology Optimization (STO) – Exact Analytical Solutions: Part II
In this lecture we review the origin and basic features of the optimal layout theory (Prager and Rozvany 1977a), including optimal regions and difficulties with so-called O-regions. Then we discuss various extensions of this theory, including multiple load conditions and multiple design constraints, probabilistic design and pre-existing members.
