"This book introduces the fundamental concepts and practical applications of modern structural optimization. It presents, in a unified approach, recent developments in the area. The text addresses both the student and the practising structural engineer. The book discusses in detail alternative problem formulations, the relative merits of different optimization methods and various considerations related to structural design. The emphasis throughout is on approximation concepts, which are essential for the solution of many practical design problems. It demonstrates how various formulations, methods and approximations are integrated to achieve effective design procedures. The advantages as well as the limitations of the different approaches are discussed and illustrated by numerous examples."--Back cover.
