Abstract:

Existing and potential applications of multi-optimization techniques to structural design are reviewed. Two approaches are available to formulate a multiobjective structural design problem. The first approach starts with a classical design, say minimize weight subject to cost, reliability, risk and other constraints and then some of the quantities included in the constraints, in particular cost and reliability, are used to define additional objectives.
