An optimality criterion method, which exploits the concept of one most critical constraint, is reported. The method eliminates the need to calculate a large set of Lagrange multipliers for the active constraints, and also eliminates the need for a decision as to whether or not a particular constraint should be considered active. The method can treat multiple load conditions and stress and displacement constraints. Application of the method to a number of truss and frame structures demonstrates the efficiency and accuracy of the method. Author
