Optimal Structural Design
Contact Problems and High-Speed Penetration
- A detailed presentation of applications of structural optimization techniques.
- Considers two concrete problems in contact mechanics and high-speed penetration.
- Both the analytical and the numerical aspects of the considered problems are covered.
Aims and Scope
This monograph studies optimization problems for rigid punches in elastic media and for high-speed penetration of rigid strikers into deformed elastoplastic, concrete, and composite media using variational calculations, tools from functional analysis, and stochastic and min-max (guaranteed) optimization approaches with incomplete data. The book presents analytical and numerical results developed by the authors during the last ten years.
