- Presents latest developments and applications in this increasingly popular & maturing optimization approach for engineers and architects;
- Authored by leading researchers in the field who have been working in the area of ESO and BESO developments since their conception;
- Includes a number of test problems for students as well as a chapter of case studies that includes several recent practical projects in which the authors have been involved;
- Accompanied by a website housing ESO/BESO computer programs at http://www.wiley.com/go/huang and test examples, as well as a chapter within the book giving a description and step-by-step instruction on how to use the software package BESO2D.
Evolutionary Topology Optimization of Continuum Structures will appeal to researchers and graduate students working in structural design and optimization, and will also be of interest to civil and structural engineers, architects and mechanical engineers involved in creating innovative and efficient structures.
