About this title


Extensive numerical methods for computing design sensitivity are included in the text for practical application and software development.  The numerical method allows integration of CAD-FEA-DSA software tools, so that design optimization can be carried out using CAD geometric models instead of FEA models.  This capability allows integration of CAD-CAE-CAM so that optimized designs can be manufactured effectively.

From the Back Cover:

Structural design sensitivity analysis concerns the relationship between design variables available to the design engineer and structural responses determined by the laws of mechanics. The dependence of response measures such as displacement, stress, strain, natural frequency, buckling load, acoustic response, frequency response, noise-vibration-harshness (NVH), thermo-elastic response, and fatigue life on the material property, sizing, component shape, and configuration design variables is defined through the energy principles (governing equations) of structural mechanics. In this 2-volume set, first- and second- order design sensitivity analyses are presented for static and dynamics responses of both linear and nonlinear elastic structural systems, including elasto-plastic and frictional contact problems.

Book I Linear Systems introduces structural design concepts that include the CAD-based design model, design parameterization, performance measures, costs, and constraints. It also discusses design sensitivity analysis of linear structural systems, and discrete and continuum design sensitivity analysis methods.


About the Authors:
