Optimal Design of Pitched Tapered Laminated Wood Beams
STANFORD UNIV CA SYSTEMS OPTIMIZATION LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
The optimal design of a pitched tapered laminated woood beam is considered. An engineering formulation is given in which the volume of the beam is minimized. The problem is then reformulated and solved as a generalized geometric signomial program. Sample designs are presented.
