Abstract:

The optimal design of reinforced concrete folded plate structures under multiple loading conditions is presented. The design variables include geometrical quantities, like the thickness, dimensions of the structural members (plates), and topological parameters, which define the locations and the connectivity of such elements. The structural analysis required during the design process is performed by using the classical finite strip method and complex harmonic coupled finite strip method for the solution of the corresponding geometric nonlinear design problem. Some applications to the optimal design of prismatic folded plates show the effectiveness of the proposed procedures. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br.
