Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to review the progress that has been made in structural optimization techniques during the last few years. The paper concentrates on the use of optimization in the design of structures from the point of view of aeroelasticity, taking into account the constraints due to loads. It gives a survey of the efforts that have been achieved in the main US firms and organizations and shows that most of the techniques are now at the stage where they are used, or can be used, for actual design.
