Overview

This work introduces a wide variety of practical approaches to the synthesis and optimization of shapes for mechanical elements and structures. The simplest methods for achieving the best results without mathematical complexity - especially computer solutions - are emphasized. The authors present detailed case studies of structures subjected to different types of static and dynamic loading, including load-bearing structures with arbitrary support conditions, rotating disks, layered structures, pressure vessels, elastic bodies and structural elements subjected to impulsive loading.
