Numerical Methods and Modeling
Wiley InterScience Backfile Collection 1832-2000
In the present paper, a quasi-analytic method for solving structural optimization problems has been developed by co-ordinated use of mathematical transformations, high-quality approximation and a two-level approximation strategy. The method which has the advantages of both generality in applications and high efficiency in computations is especially of benefit to large practical design problems. Several typical examples of different sorts have been optimized to test its power. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
