Abstract : Structural optimization is a field with many distinct avenues of investigation. Among those which are covered in this endeavor are optimality criteria methods and fully stressed design; reliability based design; optimal control methods; shape optimization; local vs. global optima; linearization and condensation methods; mathematical programming methods; practical applications (e.g., steel and concrete design); multi-objective optimization; and optimization software. Including a spectrum of papers covering these areas, an International Symposium on Optimum Structural Design was held 19-22 October 1981 on the campus of the University of Arizona, Tucson, and this associated proceedings prepared as a result.
