Abstract:

Reports of three related studies germane to structural optimization are provided. The first describes virtual memory simulator suitable for management of large quantities of numerical data such as required for sparse matrix manipulation. The second report describes two sparse matrix processors suitable for the large equation systems arising in structural analysis and provides comparative results. The last report describes a study of two optimization algorithms in the context of structural optimization. A number of test results for parameter studies and a general comparison of the two algorithms are given.
