Here is the listing of Best reference books on Structural Optimization.
|1. “Optimisation: Theory and Applications” by S.S.Rao|
|2. “Introduction to Optimum Design” by J.S.Arora
Book Review: The book covers the basic concepts of optimality conditions and numerical methods that are described with practical examples. The book also includes applications of optimization methods for problems related to structural, mechanical, aerospace and industrial engineering. The book also contains a chapter dedicated to advanced optimum design topics. This book is suitable for graduate and undergraduate students studying optimization and engineering design. The book also illustrates the formulation of design problem as an optimization problem.
|3. “Foundations of Structural Optimisation – A Unified Approach” by A.J.Morris
Book Review: This book demonstrates the mutual couplings that occur between the mathematical models of physical phenomena and also illustrates the parts of a system of an aircraft complicate and thereby explaining the consequences throughout the system. The book also describes the techniques for computing the influences as system design derivatives. These derivatives are useful for both judgemental and formal optimization purposes. The technique also presents the decomposition of design process into smaller tasks and incorporates the design tools.
|4. “Engineering Optimisation Methods and Applications” by G.V.Reklaitis, A.Ravindran and K.M.Ragsdell
Book Review: This book provides introduction to engineering optimization theory thereby explaining the efficient solutions to problems. The book also provides a practical and real world understanding of engineering optimization thereby focusing on the techniques and strategies related to engineering applications in design, operations and analysis. The book also includes duality theory, interior point methods for solving LP problems, convex functions generalization, engineering optimization and many more. The book also deals with the practical issues of model formulation, implementation, starting point generation and contains case studies and numerous examples from chemical, industrial and mechanical engineering.
|5. “Structural Optimization: Dynamic and Seismic Applications” by Kevin Z Truman|
|6. “Optimization and Artificial Intelligence in Civil and Structural Engineering” by Topping|
|7. “Optimization of Structural Systems and Industrial Applications” by Hernandez Brebbia|
|8. “Structural Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization” by K K Choi|
|9. “Discrete Structural Optimization” by Gutkowski Bauer|
|10. “Structural Optimization” by William R. Spillers|
