Title:
Form Finding of Shells by Structural Optimization 
Abstract:
Shell structures are known to be extremely parameter sensitive; even small changes of the initial design, e.g., to the shape of the shell, may drastically change the internal stress state. The ideal case for concrete shells is a pure membrane stress state in compression for all loading conditions.Since in many realistic situations the solution for an 'optimal' shape is not obvious, the need for form finding methods is evident. This paper presents computational methods of structural optimization...    »
