Abstract : A three dimensional finite element code is written for truss analysis and design. Trusses may be designed for minimum weight subject to constraints on: member stresses, Euler buckling, joint displacements and system natural frequency. The optimum configuration may be found in addition to optimization with respect to member sizes. (Author)
